aptitude update freezes

Hi All,

During an aptitude update, aptitude freezes at 99% and then times out:

Get:5 lenny/updates/contrib Packages [14B]
Get:6 lenny/updates/non-free Packages [14B]
Hit etch-backports/contrib Packages/DiffIndex
Hit etch-backports/non-free Packages/DiffIndex
Hit etch-backports/contrib Packages
Err testing Release.gpg
Could not connect data socket, connection timed out
Get:7 testing/main Translation-en_US [14B]
99% [7 Translation-en_US 0/14B 0%]

I've never had this problem before. Maybe the repository is off line. Thoughts?

Thanks Much,

Removing it from the repository list would probably be the best thing to do until they allow anonymous login again.
