No. That's md5sums for the images, but signed using GPG. GPG is where
the "Hash: SHA1" bit comes from. As for the .debs being corrupted, do
you have any logs to show that. Woody's old (yes!), but those images
have worked in the past.

Checking the checksums of the ISO files on the server in the directory
you mention, they all look OK.
