    Your server is unable to resolve the IP addresses for domain names.

    Please check your /etc/resolv.conf if the nameservers listed there are working and reachable from your server.

    Re:

    Till,
    thanks for your reply.
    Apt-get works already now.

    One more question:
    In ISPConfig > Management > Server > Settings > DNS,
    i have to mention two DNS-servers:
    Default Ns1: ?
    Default Ns2: ?

    Which DNS-servers have i have to mentioned here,
    the IP-address of my own server, which runs Bind9 or
    the DNS-resolvers provided by the network of the colocation?

    These DNS Servers where used as defaults in the ISPConfig DNS-Manager. So you should enter the domain of your server as ns1 and the domain of the secondary server that you want to use as ns2.

    hello,

    I had the same issue as above, I do not know why but my /etc/resolv.conf contained also this line: nameserver localhost ...

    I tok it out and its all working again.
    Anyone has got any clue as to how that line came to be there? the only change I made was to tell my bind configuration: Do full recursive lookups for clients? NO as I did not want an open DNS server. could that have been the reason?

    It must have been there already.
