Don't know if this is your problem or not but
in my slink sources.list, I have
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian slink main contrib
and in my potato box
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian potato main contrib
They both work fine.
Might be a link problem due the recent unstable to stable change(?).
:-) HTH, YMMV, HAND :-)
