You need to add " --recv-keys " to the GPG key. I got it to work prop when added. Looked like this:
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com FE85409EEAB40ECCB65740816AF0E1940624A220

I added rev keys like this:

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys FE85409EEAB40ECCB65740816AF0E1940624A220

Worked. ty

Where should I use this command?

Why "--recv-keys" is used for twice?

because it hangs then times out. I added the extra code to test & t came through. The 1st recvkeys bypasses the 1st server not the 2nd. The long key you used goes through 2 servers. I verified this process on 2 different systems with success.
