It looks like the computer is not connected to the internet. You need an internet connection to download these models.

The computer is connected to the internet. You can confirm by looking at the up & down arrow in the top right corner of the picture

On my computer, that icon just means "network settings", but not necessarily that there is a connection.

You might have some default proxy setting for the terminal. Open the network settings from Settings and apply same proxy setting system wide. If you do not use any proxy then select None and apply system wide. Please restart before using further
