    Usually the "Something wicked happened resolving..." is an indication that your DNS configuration is unable to resolve the address that it is trying to resolve
    Are you behind a proxy maybe?
    Maybe it is simply a case of checking your network connection settings, resetting it?
    Then retry the "apt-get update"
    It's not what you know but who you know!

    You will have to disable the repositories http://64.repository.backtrack-linux.org/, http://all.repository.backtrack-linux.org, when I click on them with browser it is shown a page full of 0s and 1s, no any software package. What for are them?, what ubuntu are you using?

    Disable them in sources.list
