I think the easiest way will be to download the latest iso for 2010.2 and then updates will work.

Or is there a good reason for using Mandriva 2009.1?

EDIT:
When you click on the url you mentioned, you'll get an dns error because the website doesn't exist anymore under that url. Google told me the following one: http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/

I think mandriva 2009.1 is too old and no longer supported.

If your hardware is low-spec then try installing a modern version of linux that is built for low-spec machines. For example lubuntu.
