Problem with gpg when checking patrick's key ?

Hi
I’m reinstalling Whonix from scratch, I’ve dowloaded Patrick’s OpenPGP key with name “~/patrick.asc”, and when I check it with

gpg --keyid-format long --with-fingerprint patrick.asc

I get the output:

gpg: WARNING: no command supplied. Trying to guess what you mean …
pub rsa4096/8D66066A2EEACCDA 2014-01-16 [SC] [expires: 2021-04-17]
Key fingerprint = 916B 8D99 C38E AF5E 8ADC 7A2A 8D66 066A 2EEA CCDA

instead of

pub 4096R/8D66066A2EEACCDA 2014-01-16 Patrick Schleizer adrelanos@riseup.net
Key fingerprint = 916B 8D99 C38E AF5E 8ADC 7A2A 8D66 066A 2EEA CCDA

sub 4096R/CB8D50BB77BB3C48 2014-01-16 [expires: 2021-04-17]

Am I good to go on or is there a problem ? Do I need to do something else ?
Host is Ubuntu 18.04. Thanks

Hi iesnes

You’re good to go. What you are doing is ensuring that the fingerprint and owner match up.

Fingerprint:

Key fingerprint = 916B 8D99 C38E AF5E 8ADC 7A2A 8D66 066A 2EEA CCDA

Owner:

Patrick Schleizer

The fingerprint is the important one since a key can be created using any name.
