[Aptitude-devel] Bug#673521: Wheezy: "aptitude update" fails

Package: aptitude                        
Version: 0.6.7-1

Started to have problems several day ago running "aptitude update" in wheezy. I can access the following URLs from the browser without any problems, so it doesn't look like an access problem to me:

When running "aptitude update" several times, the reported IPs change (for example, IP: 80) but the error persists.

Any ideas? Thanks
