Like it says "Temporary".

Try again later.

In the meanwhile check your network connectivity is good.

Also try sudo apt update to see if you can reach an alternative mirror.

BAD ANSWER. It has been "temporary" for THREE MONTHS now! This indicates that it is most likely permanent.

It's been like this for 3+ MONTHS!
Are there ANY mirrors working? Is Raspbian "stretch" still supported by anyone?
I was not complaining until now, but now I Need to install SNTP for a project!

Nothing wrong there. Can I suggest you check your DNS settings as it is most likely your end? Have you configured a static IP address and not specified a name server?

Yes Stretch is still the current release (Buster isn't released yet).

I don't know if anyone has answered given a helpful answer, but I came by looking for a solution to the same problem. I ended up fixing it by disabling wifi [dtoverlay=pi3-disable-wifi] and then rebooting. After looking the dhcp table of my router I saw the pi multiple times. This is just a guess but I'm assuming that the pi was trying to connect through both wlan0 and eth0 and causing the issue. That's my best guess and may be completely wrong.

I have the same issue yet I can do wget and nslookup or ping and all of them work BUT trying to run apt-get install will return
" Temporary failure resolving 'raspbian.raspberrypi.org'"

I tried disabling wifi but that didn't work. I removed the wifi dongle and then it worked again with no issues. So, as mentioned above, it must be related to the wifi dongle, what I don't know yet is why it only affects apt-get and not other internet requests, could it be something that only affects the root user for some reason? (given that apt-get will only run successfully as root/sudo) :?

I just installed the latest "Stretch" dated Nov/2018 on my Pi3B and am still getting this dratted
Temporary failure resolving 'archive.raspberrypi.org' that I had last fall with the older stretch (above)
DHCPCD is as follows-

Code: Select all

]interface eth0
static routers=192.168.200.1
static domain_name_servers=192.168.200.1 8.8.4.4 8.8.8.8
static domain_search=8.8.4.4 8.8.8.8
noipv6
static ip_address=192.168.200.99
interface wlan0
inform 192.168.200.98
static routers=192.168.200.1
static domain_name_servers=8.8.4.4 8.8.8.8
noipv6
static domain_search=192.168.200.1 
My ifconfig output is as follows:
eth0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 192.168.200.99 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.200.255

I thought I had disabled the wlan0, but it seems to be active again. Would a conflict between ip addresses 98 and 99 cause the "TEMP" failure above?
Ideally I just wish to use eth0. BUT be able to turn on the wlan0 if I happen to move the Pi to a place where there is no Cat5.
Should I be using something other than Google's 8.8.....name servers?
Hmm... maybe the Rasp repositories require ipV6 ??? ;-)
Thanx.
