It sounds like the IP configuration might be good, but not the domain
name resolving part.  I would first check this, as well as if your
/etc/apt/sources.list contains valid information (it might be pointing
to an invalid mirror as a consequence of using the --mirror option, in
which case --install-mirror could be better).

I can confirm that networking is up when is invoked, as I have
used this method previously with success.

I would suggest that you redirect error messages produced by the
commands in your to a file that you will browse at your leisure

Hope this helps,
