Yes that URL works that is why I mentioned above that RELEASE files I have been able to access from some other machine using a browser can you tell me how can I check if it is communicating with internet the machine is behind a proxy and ping www.google.com wont work behind a proxy.I have to do it on command line.

apt-get update is also having following problems so I guess that it
is some other issue.
Code:
openworld:~# apt-get update

W: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
I do not have a physical access to the machine.Only an ssh on LAN.
