/etc/hosts is incorrect. A very simple and typical hosts file looks like 

cut here 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------       localhost    nameofyourcomputer

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts
cut here 

modify your /etc/hosts and try again.
