apt-get, lovely tool.
Look at the extra info you can find in the ATP-Howto;
First of all, you need to tell apt what locations you wish to use,
and that's done by editting the /etc/apt/sources.list (chapter 2.1)
later on, when you got an mirror you can use, and you got rid of
the 404 errors, the apt-get update && apt-get upgrade will run
smoothly, and you can take a peak at netselect-apt if you wish
Read thru the howto, and keep it handy whenever you find yourself
in a situation where apt is calling the shots.
