Your machine isn't connected or has no proper means to resolve names: try ping to see, whether you can reach the internets at all. –  miku Feb 14 '11 at 13:43

It seems that you have the troubles with your dns servers or local name resolver. You can use dig to determine ip-adderss of www.jpackage.org and then add it to your local /etc/hosts file.
