When it downloads two files at a time, this means there are two lines
in /etc/apt/sources.list corresponding to the two files. The only way
I can think of of forcing it to download from only one, is to comment
out one of the lines.
But I don't see that yoy should need to do this. Just ignore the one
that times out and download everything else. Then when everything
else is downloaded, run apt-get again, and this time it will only try
to download from the timed-out site. So the second time through it
will only be trying to download from one site.
