Re: Security.debian.org confused?

Hi all --

  I'm having trouble with what seems like it should be a routine
security update on "lenny" -- I did "apt-get update; apt-get upgrade"
as per usual, and got this:

E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try

  The elipses conceal the fact that all three files had the
not-found problem.
  I tried re-updating and --fix-missing, no joy.

  Doing host security.debian.org gets this:

mec:~# host security.debian.org
security.debian.org has address
security.debian.org has address
security.debian.org has address
security.debian.org has IPv6 address 2001:4f8:8:36::6
security.debian.org mail is handled by 10 klecker.debian.org.

  The fetch URL looks wrong to me, and manually trying it
in the browser seems to confirm that it's mangled.

However, I can manually go to http://security.debian.org/pool/updates/main, and the stuff
is in there.
I haven't changed my configuration, but I'm willing to believe
I missed a memo and have drifted out of date.

  Anyone got any clues?

I think that there is something wrong with security.debian.org. A couple of days ago I did "aptitude update" and the updates did not come in until the third time i did "aptitude update", I then installed the update as normal (never got an error). Then I checked to see if the corresponding files were on the 3 IPv4 mirrors, they were. I don't think that the mirrors were synchronized at the same time that I was trying to install the update. And I know of someone else that saw that same behavior around that same time.
