"Err http://br.archive.ubuntu.com hardy-security/main libavutil1d 
 403 Forbidden [IP: 80]"

I think the reason is pretty clear from the initial message. This user is 
being denied its access by the HTTP server, returning an error 403 (which is 
not far from another that you may know, the 404..).

Hence, you should advise him to check why he is refused access on this server, 
and if needed, contact the web server administrator.

If you plan on preparing more tutorials, I would kindly advise you to be 
prepared for some more feedback like this. That is all about helping 

However, I think it is also important to try to do a bit more of analysis 
before contacting the maintainers.
