Can't install Thunderbird on Feisty x86-32

Doesn't matter whether I use apt-get or Synaptic, it complains that
there's a corrupt package.

I'm trying to install Thunderbird 2.0 but I need 1.5 from the repos
first to fulfil some dependencies and so on.

I'm using the main UK archives:

Any ideas, anyone? Could the file in the repository be corrupt? I've
tried rummaging around using a web browser in the repo itself but I
can't find where the packages themselves live, only the various
summary and index files.

This is the actual error text:
