Is there a problem with the apt source

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 since thismorning. Before that, everything was
working fine.

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

et:1 breezy-security Release.gpg [189B]
Get:2 stable Release.gpg [189B]
Hit breezy-security Release
Hit stable Release
Hit breezy-security/main Packages
Ign stable/main Packages
Hit breezy-security/restricted Packages
Hit breezy-security/main Sources
Hit stable/main Packages
Hit breezy-security/restricted Sources
Hit breezy-security/multiverse Packages
99% [Connecting to (]

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 breezy main restricted
deb-src breezy main restricted
deb breezy-updates main restricted
deb breezy multiverse
deb breezy universe
deb breezy-backports main \
    restricted universe multiverse
deb breezy-security main restricted
deb-src breezy-security main \
deb breezy-security multiverse
deb stable main

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

I would appreciate any pointers to what may be happening.
