Sounds like a DNS error, did you try resolving any other addresses to ensure that your DNS Settings are correct and that you can connect to your DNS Server ?

Sorry, only work with windows so i have no idea how you do this, in Windows (if its the same) you have a nslookup utility to check DNS resolution. Alternativley you could just ping a name and see if it resolves to an ip.

If all this is ok and working then it could be possible that the sites DNS servers weren't responding (went through a phase of this a good few months ago where we were experiencing intermittent DNS issues).
