When I run sudo apt-get update this is my output:

Err:1 http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-security InRelease  
  Temporary failure resolving 'security.ubuntu.com'

I'm new to servers and have run into this issue. I've managed to get SSH up and running and am attempting to install Apache. Nothing will install. I am new to Linux servers. I have only worked with Windows Servers before.

Let me know if any other info would be helpful.

    You need root privileges to run apt-get. Try with sudo apt-get update. – mook765 Oct 29 '17 at 3:49
  • Thanks—I ran that command and posted the updated output in the question. – Josiah Chapman Oct 29 '17 at 4:13
  • This looks really different now. You may take a look for similar questions like askubuntu.com/questions/769227/… or askubuntu.com/questions/892569/… – mook765 Oct 29 '17 at 4:38
  • Do you have routing/DNS problems by chance? What do you get when you run ping and traceroute for those domains? – m_krsic Oct 29 '17 at 18:49
