Default Strange problem with upgrading

I have a strange problem that I cannot seem to solve. I perform an upgrade to -current every 1-2 weeks and for a month now I have this strange problem.

When booting from bsd.rd, packages are nowhere to be found. From http or ftp, I give the full path (eg ftp.cc.uoc.gr or ftp.fr.openbsd.org), specify the path to the files (pub/OpenBSD/snapshots/<arch>/) but I constantly get
ftp: temporary failure in name resolution
This keeps happening both on amd64 and i386. I tried with
>echo 'nameserver' > /mnt/etc/resolv.conf
>echo 'nameserver' > /etc/resolv.conf
and continued the upgrade but I get the same error.

My main resolv.conf has 'nameserver' because of adsuck installation.

What am I missing?
