Not even remotely good. You should never see a public name
resolved to the address 220.127.116.11 (hm, and I thought we had name
resolution already eliminated from the list of possible problems).
Please show the output of (on the command line)

Hm, interesting. gb.archive.ubuntu.com is resolved to a correct
address. Although it doesn't help you much since you've probably have no
IPv6 connectivity. What does
If you go to
an change "Download from:" to "Main server", does "check" in update
manager work better?

Which confirms that it's a configuration problem.
Did your network access ever work on this Ubuntu install?
