Whops...I'm sorry. You're from the US, aren't you? If so, non-US won't
be available, AFAIK. I have no idea about the availability of crypto
software in the US, but I'm sure someone else knows. It's somewhat
off-topic for this list, though.

I don't think I've ever experienced that. I guess it _could_ be related

No, that's not usual. If commenting out the non-US line doesn't work,
please either provide some of the offending URLs or the relevant lines
of sources.list.
