This can either be a temporary error on the mirrors in question (possibly 
because they were being synced), or an problem with your network setup or 
network connection.

For the last, it could be possibly be the issue described in

Could you retry and see if the problem persists? If it does, could you try 
the workaround mentioned in #401435?
Trying a completely different mirror (like ftp.nl.debian.org, which in my 
experience is very reliable) could be an option too.
