hydurga,

Yes, VMware tools need to be installed. I am going to bring up another vm that IS working correctly and copy the sources.list file and then edit the one for this system and see if that does anything.

I have it working. The problem was that a recent update to the Anti Virus software on the host enabled the firewall on the host which, for some reason blocked all the VMs. As I am behind 2 firewalls already, I killed the Windows firewall and the AV app that was managing it and everything works now.
