The ID of the key has only 8 chars like 23DC003A. You have a double length for your key. What is the fingerprint for the key you want to import?

Try:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 23DC003A

This will import the GPG key for the repository you just added.

Otherwise you can try adding the fingerprint after "sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys"
