Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: whois

I'm speculating the "Connection refused" means the server name in whois
is wrong.  There is a whois server at whois.aeda.net.ae which appears
authoritative.  They offer a web lookup at http://whois.aeda.net.ae/ as

ubuntu at ubuntu$ whois example.ae
connect: Connection refused

ubuntu at ubuntu$ lsb_release -rd
Description:  Ubuntu 9.10
Release:      9.10
