Hello I just installed Ubuntu Server on a PC and am having issues getting it to connect online and download updates or packages. I have been using the sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade and get the error Temporary failure resolving "us.archive.Ubuntu.com" I have tried to ping known sites like google and get the error Ping: Unknown Host google.com. Also I have tried to install the Ubuntu GUI and had no luck there. I am new to working with servers and Ubuntu Server 16.04 LTS has not worked like the desktop version I am used to.  I have tried to edit the file /etc/network/interfaces file and could not get it to work and have plugged the server into Ethernet and that failed as well.  I hope this is enough information
