Unable to apt-get dist-upgrade / upgrade whatever...


I've got a problem with updating my Debian system. It is running the unstable version with kernel 2.4.3. When I run dselect and update the package list everything goes well. Then I try to install some packages (and update some existing packages). Downloading goes well, but then: the package system halts with the following message: 

|Fetched 7597kB in 2m52s (44.0kB/s)

Pressing enter doesn't work... it just halts... I am sure I downloaded the packages of an official source (my sources.list points to http.us.debian.org and non-us.debian.org).

Does somebody know a work-around, or are the packages just corrupt and need to be fixed?

Thanks in advance,
