  3. Re: sa-update failed, dns: query failed: 3.2.3.updates.spamassassin.org => no nameservers

    My guess is that your assertion that DNS is working is false.



    What does "dig 3.2.3.updates.spamassassin.org ANY" return for you? Ought to
    be a TXT record and then numerous NS records for spamassassin.org.

    Perhaps your resolv.conf has multiple nameservers and the first one is having
    issues?

    Are you using someone else's DNS server which may be manipulating the results?

    Are you going through a firewall or DNS proxy which may not allow or
    mishandles certain requests?

    Have you run tcpdump/etc and watched the traffic to see what's going on?
