Perhaps this is a temporary problem with your provider’s DNS server.

We can add Google Public DNS server to our system as a temporary solution:

echo "nameserver" | sudo tee /etc/resolv.conf > /dev/null

or as permanently:

echo "nameserver" | sudo tee /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/base > /dev/null

Then repeat the command:

sudo apt-get update
