Thank you, this was helpful.  It turned out I do have some problem on the machine I was using, that was causing it to fail silently.

However it appears I still can’t upgrade, since my architecture isn’t supported:

repository 'https://ose-repo.syslog-ng.com/apt stable InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'armhf'

back to the drawing board. ☹  I’m fighting a problem where syslog-ng seems to hang occasionally (no reason found) which then hangs journald eventually, since syslog-ng isn’t reading the socket, and it fills up and blocks…

I guess you are having some kind of network problem (https or name resolution issue), thus apt-key receives nothing .
Check the output of wget on the machine you would like to update.

I've double-checked this in an Ubuntu 20.04 docker image:
root at 3a9f375aab0f:/# wget -qO - https://ose-repo.syslog-ng.com/apt/syslog-ng-ose-pub.asc | apt-key add -

root at 3a9f375aab0f:/# echo foobar | apt-key add -
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.

root at 3a9f375aab0f:/# wget -qO - https://cant-reaach-network | apt-key add -
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.

I am attempting to follow the instructions at this blog link, but get an error trying to download the public key:

# wget -qO - https://ose-repo.syslog-ng.com/apt/syslog-ng-ose-pub.asc | sudo apt-key add –
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.

I’ve tried searching later blog post, without success.

I’d like to try a later version (3.25.1-3 from ubuntu-20.04 packages) since we seem to randomly have this version hang, which eventually seems to block journald as well.
