i'm facing some trouble while trying to install some packages on Ubuntu 16.04

When I try "sudo apt-get update", I'm stuck with message :

Err:1 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial InRelease
  Temporary failure resolving 'us.archive.ubuntu.com'

Found this topic : Apt-get update not working in Ubuntu 16.04 "temporary failure resolving"

didn't helped, I'm still facing the issue.

Actually I can ping us.archive.ubuntu.com correctly, and return a correct sudo wget www.google.com

Help !

Regards, dFx
