the host <hostname> from which you try to download packages is unreachable.
Since you have hidden the real hostname, I assume that you have been using
private package mirror which is unavailable.

you should configure working host in your /etc/apt/sources.list, usually
something like:

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial main restricted

and re-run apt-get
