Well, you're not alone - I've been getting this on and off since the
middle of January :( It just didn't want to know at all last night.
Switching to http has generally worked, though even then I've had the
occasional hiccup where it wouldn't connect. I've had to switch to http
permanently at work as ftp access always gives connection refused - just
to ftp.uk.debian.org. Pointing to another ftp mirror like
ftp.fr.debian.org works fine too
If anyone more informed could enlighten us, it'd be appreciated.
 Though the recent rsync problems made that a bit hairy too.
