It looks like you may be required to use a proxy server to access the
Internet from your location.  You probably have your regular web browser
already configured to do that, but curl won't know about those settings.

Try setting the HTTP_PROXY environment variable to point to your proxy
server.  Make sure you export that:

export HTTP_PROXY=http://some-server.example.com:1234/

Use your real server's information, of course.  The curl program should
use that to access the Internet through your proxy server and hopefully
resolve this issue for you.
