Hi,

Anybody know who is managing the ubuntu sources at 
ubuntuarchive.is.co.za?

It seems to me that the mirroring process may have failed. The 
aptitude/apt-get upgrade process with the sources set to fetch from 
za.archive.ubuntu.com fails with a file not found this morning.

$ sudo aptitude upgrade

Do you want to continue? [Y/n/?] y
Err http://za.archive.ubuntu.com dapper-updates/main 
xserver-xorg-core 1:1.0.2-0ubuntu10.1
   404 Not Found

Changing the sources to just archives.ubuntu.com does the trick.
