No such file or directory would seem to indicate that it can't find the php executable.  I would suggest providing the full path to php.  I'd also suggest breaking your command up into its parts and passing it as a list to the call method rather than passing it as a single string:

subprocess.call( ["/usr/bin/php", "files/updatekey.php"] )
