It could be that you're just hitting a transient network error. Try again and see if it works now.

Alternatively, there could be something wrong with your network configuration (although unlikely). Try to see whether this succeeds:

$ nslookup

Also make sure you have no http(s) proxy configured anywhere. It might be interfering.

So what was it in the end? Transient error? Proxy? Also: on this site answers are accepted by clicking the check mark at the left of an answer. We rarely close questions, as there might still be some discussion.
