I never needed a mirror, so i do not have tested this:

There are some full mirrors at the end of the page. Please try them even if they are not nearer to you, but maybe your ISP has a better connection to them.

1) Make a backup copy of /etc/apt/sources.list
2) Edit /etc/apt/sources.list, and replace all occurrences of with e.g.
3) run apt-get update
4) Try again to install the rpm packages.
