Default Debootstrap method fails to get release file http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/

This is the article I am referring to

I try to install by debootstrap method and installation aborts in
middle of the process. The error showing in /var/log/xen-tools/filename.log is
I: Retrieving Release
E: Failed getting release file http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/dists/lenny/Release

Copying files from new installation to host.
Copying files from /tmp/jUrDxM_Km2/var/cache/apt/archives -> /var/cache/apt/archives
The installation of the new system has failed.

The system is missing the common file: /bin/ls
System installation failed.  Aborting
While I checked from browser link
http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/dists/lenny/Release I was able to get
release file but some how debootstrap method is failing to get release
file what can be cause of error?
