It looks like this is output of apt or apt-get, and it looks like packages.ros.org resolves to an IPv6 for you while it's trying to download packages.

This is not strictly a ROS problem, but a system configuration one. I'm going to close this for now, and would suggest you try and find out ..

.. why your system is trying to use IPv6 in this case. If it is supposed to work, then I'd suggest to see if things are correctly configured. If not, then perhaps disabling IPv6 would be a good first work-around.

In any case, a forum like Ask Ubuntu would be more appropriate for this question.

Could be an IPv6 problem. Does this Unix & Linux question and answer help?
