perhaps it was just a temporary problem. When I search for the key I get
the following:

gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --search-keys 886DDD89
gpg: searching for "886DDD89" from hkp server keys.gnupg.net
(1)     deb.torproject.org archive signing key
          2048 bit RSA key 886DDD89, created: 2009-09-04

You can install this software without the key by ignoring the warning,
but this is not recommended.

For receiving the key you can try another keyserver like pgp.mit.edu or
If you prefer a Webbrowser you can try this link:
