Your Ubuntu installation is not connected to the internet. If it is running in a VM, make sure that the VM software is set to use Bridge Mode, or NAT, alternatively, NOT host-only. Otherwise, make sure your router supports DHCP or specify an IP address for your Ubuntu installation by hand.

@user1959686, is the VPN set on the host computer, or inside the virtual machine? – hexafraction Apr 20 '13 at 12:41
