Is were some reason for using 0.8.0 version which is somewhere between
hell and purgatory? Squeeze released with for example…

I have a ftp archive in my sources.list which never failed - but its just
there as a small test. I guess ftp isn't used too much nowadays
especially as the http is a multitude better - and easier to provide.
Furthermore the ftp method hasn't seen big changes for years (~2006)
(its more or less only updated to cope with newer gcc versions or
 other small scale changes) so i can't reproduce your problem.

A quick skip over the code suggests that you could disable the use of
passive mode with Acquire::FTP::Passive, but try to force the extended
passive mode also which is used (or should) be used for IPv6 with
Acquire::FTP::ForceExtended in contrast to the 'simple' PASV as IPv4…
