java.net.UnknownHostException

tip

Check if you don't have a VPN or something like this messing with your connection. Also, check Jenkins DNS configurations (try to start it with "--dns 8.8.8.8".

You have a different solution? A short tip here would help you and many other users who saw this issue last week.
