The word, 'Breezy' in the error suggests that perhaps you forgot to change 
everything to 'Dapper'.  This is the sources.list I have been using ...and it 
works ;-) :

# Automatically generated sources.list
# http://www.ubuntulinux.nl/source-o-matic
# If you get errors about missing keys, lookup the key in this file
# and run these commands (replace KEY with the key number)
# gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv KEY
# gpg --export --armor KEY | sudo apt-key add -

# Ubuntu supported packages (packages, GPG key: 437D05B5)
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu dapper main restricted
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu dapper-updates main restricted
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu dapper-security main restricted

# Ubuntu community supported packages (packages, GPG key: 437D05B5)
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu dapper universe multiverse

Also, have a look at Bug# 40683.  There'll be no surprises, then, 
hopefully. :-)
