http.us.debian.org isn't one mirror, it's several mirrors available
via round-robin DNS.  You seem to have hit one of the mirrors that's
not quite up-to-date for some reason.

There's a package (netselect IIRC?) in debian that will help you find
the fastest mirror from your location.  Type "host http.us.debian.org"
for a list of the server IPs.

HTH,
