Thanks for your reply.

This command does remove the error messages, but does not resolve my
problem. I noticed it is not entirely broken too.

If I try to load a webpage from an IP address (like my local server),
it works.

If I try the same with an hostname added to /etc/hosts, it works too.
It works even if the server is not local.

If I try with an hostname from a DNS server it doesn't work.

Other applications (like elinks) doesn't have any problem.
