unable to resolve host ...

I followed some instructions from another thread to install vnc packages 
so I can use Remote Desktop Viewer and got the following output from 
terminal. The line I'm worried about is - *sudo: unable to resolve host 
Does this mean this install bombed. If not, why can it not resolve my 
local host and is this something I need to worry about?
