$ host is an alias for has address

$ host
Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

Do you see the problem, and why a DNS solution was suggested?

Alternatively, as a test, try substituting the IP address in
your /etc/apt/sources.list for "" and see if that

For instance, 
sudo cp  /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.backup
gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
(use "Search -Replace" to replace with )
sudo apt-get update

I have no idea why your system thinks has an IP
address of - the above solution should work as long as the IP
remains as it currently is, but there's definitely something very odd
about DNS returning like that ....
