I didn't read the whole mail, just skimming it over but to me it looks
like you don't have your DNS nameservers setup right and if you using
a static IP you need to ad them manually. The IP's of the nameserver
should be in the papers from your ISP else call them or perhaps you
can see them in your router. When you got them add them to
This is mine looks:
$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
# Generated by NetworkManager
# NOTE: the libc resolver may not support more than 3 nameservers.
# The nameservers listed below may not be recognized.

Hope it help
