apt configure frustrating me

I was totally confused by apt-get settings.i have an accessible repodata ( fedora/linux/6/i386 core extras updates),during executing "apt-get update" come up with a problem ,any error prompt:

Get:1 fedora/linux/6/i386 release [1264B]
Fetched 1264B in 3s (338B/s)
Err fedora/linux/6/i386/core pkglist
Connection failed
Get:1 fedora/linux/6/i386/core release [170B]
Err fedora/linux/6/i386/extras pkglist
Connection failed
Get:2 fedora/linux/6/i386/extras release [174B]
Get:3 fedora/linux/6/i386/updates pkglist [1789kB]
Get:4 fedora/linux/6/i386/updates release [176B]
Fetched 1789kB in 1m57s (15.2kB/s)
Failed to fetch Connection failed
Failed to fetch Connection failed
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
E: Some index

the above URLs where "" do not actually corresponds to real URL ""

why apt-get have no the postfix ".bz2"?
how should i fix this?
what 's the meaning of "pkglist" and "realse"?

Why don't you install Fedora 10? Fedora 6 is too old... it is not supported

That means nothing.
Sometimes apt skips a repo when it does not get a timely response, or when the mirror is being synchronized, or heavy traffic, try again later.
