May I know how you are attempting to installing the MySQL package.
I think you are installing through yum( if Redhat /Fedora or apt-get if ubuntu/Debian).
Do mention the correct OS too?

In case of Internet Connection:

Just open /etc/yum.repo.d/yum.conf and see the URL it is pointing to.
Your machine is unable to resolve the address.DNS seems to be unable to resolve host -to- IP and IP -to-Hostname.
Ping The repo site and see whats the IP its returning and put IP on the same URL.
That shud work for you.

If no Internet is there,
You can download the package manually..or create a local repo
