ubuntu/debian - Temporary failure resolving ‘sites in sources.list’

If you are trying to download packages using terminal and you are facing this error, check these things first.

If you are using proxy, proxy address should be defined in these files.
1) check /etc/apt/apt.conf file for proxy
2) check /etc/environment file for proxy


If you are not using proxy, make sure proxy settings should be removed from above files.

If above files are according to requirement and you are still facing this problem, try this solution.

Open file /etc/resolv.conf, add following line in the file and save it.
nameserver 8.8.8.8

8.8.8.8 is google's public DNS address.


Now restart networking and try to install packages again.
