Is there a problem with the apt source us.archive.ubuntu.com?

Hi all,

I have been trying to do an apt-get update since this morning, and the
update process has been consistently hanging on connection to
us.archive.ubuntu.com since thismorning. Before that, everything was
working fine.

Below is what I see when I run apt-get update:

et:1 http://security.ubuntu.com breezy-security Release.gpg [189B]
Get:2 http://www.debian-multimedia.org stable Release.gpg [189B]
Hit http://security.ubuntu.com breezy-security Release
Hit http://www.debian-multimedia.org stable Release
Hit http://security.ubuntu.com breezy-security/main Packages
Ign http://www.debian-multimedia.org stable/main Packages
Hit http://security.ubuntu.com breezy-security/restricted Packages
Hit http://security.ubuntu.com breezy-security/main Sources
Hit http://www.debian-multimedia.org stable/main Packages
Hit http://security.ubuntu.com breezy-security/restricted Sources
Hit http://security.ubuntu.com breezy-security/multiverse Packages
99% [Connecting to us.archive.ubuntu.com (146.137.96.7)]

And it hangs there for a while and then returns a series of 404 errors.

My network connectivity is fine.

Below is my /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy main restricted
deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy main restricted
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-updates main restricted
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy multiverse
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy universe
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-backports main \
    restricted universe multiverse
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-security main restricted
deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-security main \
    restricted
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy-security multiverse
deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org stable main

Some lines were too long, so I have indicated continuation using '\'

I would appreciate any pointers to what may be happening.
