apt-get install => waiting for headers

I am trying to install a new version of bash on my system and get stuck

apt-get install bash

with a "waiting for headers" message.

I can install other packages using aptitude or apt-get.

When I tried to access/download the bash package on the Debian site with a
web browser, I get a timeout.

Package bash

    * stable (base): The GNU Bourne Again SHell
      2.05b-26: alpha amd64 arm hppa i386 ia64 m68k mips mipsel powerpc s390

I can easily access/download other packages (e.g. python) using the same
site, browser, etc.

I suppose I am missing something very obvious, but I couldn't find a
solution searching mailing lists and other fora.
