Ok, tried just now on a server located in Austria:

server:~# freshclam --list-mirrors
Mirror #1
Successes: 1478
Failures: 12
Last access: Mon Dec  1 15:28:13 2008
Ignore: No
Mirror #2
Successes: 2846
Failures: 13
Last access: Mon Dec  1 18:28:14 2008
Ignore: No

(your output of freshclam --list-mirrors may be useful as well)

server:~# freshclam -v --datadir=/tmp/clamav
Current working dir is /tmp/clamav

Hmm, did you upgrade all of clamav to the version from volatile? You should have
done so, upgrading clamav-data only will not get us much further ...

Whereever you can catch all the packets that should travel from/to clamav
upgrade servers. The commandline should be

tcpdump -vvv -i eth0 tcp port 80

You might want to experiment with -v vs. -vvv to see how much output is useful.
