Well, the error is obvious in its suggestion: is your internet connection working? I mean, the URL works for me. In case you're using a proxy, mention this in your question. – gertvdijk Jan 26 '13 at 17:12
My Internet works fine. And I'm not connected to the internet via a proxy server. Right now I'm at a friends house and the problems still occurs. – tk4muffin Jan 26 '13 at 22:28
