This answer may help. I suggest you choose another server. Stuff like this happen form time to time. –  Alvar Jul 19 '11 at 13:40

After reading your post, I just noticed pretty much the same thing. Might be that their server is down for a bit.

I had the same problem and i fixed this issue by setting my ISP's DNS adress manually on /etc/resolv.conf (that is probably another issue why i had dns as 192.168.0.254 from dhcp) Rafael, might you have same issue?

@TheEvilPhoenix: DNS is a valid issue, if the DNS server you're using returns a wrong IP or if a firewall is blocking it altogether, such an error may occur. Think a bit out of the box, otherwise it could be closed as "too localised" ;) –  Lekensteyn Jul 19 '11 at 14:18
