I'm not familiar with Kubuntu releases, so bear with me.  If Kubuntu
supplies KGPG you can check there which keyserver it is using and
change it - it may not be  Kleopatra, on the other
hand, appears to have a fixed setting - my system says it is using
hkp:// .  I imagine the only way to change that to would be in ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf.

In theory the key servers sync frequently, but on several occasions
I've found that the key I needed is not on a particular server, and
I've used command-line access to try different servers until I found it.
