If you got 11GB into the rip, the problem isn't with the decryption keys. Read errors are most likely the cause.

When the drive says it cannot read the disk, cleaning is the first step.
I tried a few times though and it consistently got an error about 11GB into the rip.

The discs are brand new, so I'm wondering if my drive needs cleaning? It's weird though because I tried ripping a different 4K movie in my collection after that, and it ripped the whole movie without a problem.

What's the easiest way to clean an optical drive?

If you read through If you're experiencing rip errors, please read here first!, you'd see that "New in package" isn't such a good indicator of "clean". There are links in there for dealing with proper, safe cleaning of optical disks, even when the look clean.

Easiest way to clean a DRIVE has been explained by Billycar11 in a few messages here on the forum.

I'll second Woodstock's statement about brand new discs sometimes need cleaning. I bought a brand new UHD last week and the disc failed to rip on three different drives. After two cleanings, the rip made it considerably farther.

I returned my set to Amazon and had them send me a new set, and I was able to rip Star Trek 3 without any problems now. I haven't tried the others yet though.
