The URL it's trying to grab updates from is incorrect...

Working
h t t p ://nz.archive.gnewsense.org/gnewsense/dists/deltah-security/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz


Your is pointing at..
h t t p ://nz.archive.gnewsense.org/gnewsense/dists/deltad/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz

Have you not kept your distro up to date and security fixes are no longer available for your current version ? D vs H
