    well, if named is down, you don't have a resolver to resolve the links for the package downloads.

    try using an external resolver(from the datacenter or maybe you have another server), and add it to resolve.conf.

    But is best to see what exactly is going on, why you have that error.

    Login to the server and restart named, then look in /var/log/messages to see what went wrong.
