Mandrake update problems

Ive been trying for over a week to get mandrake update working in 10.1, and no luck, when it worked fine before that.. all the sudden I get

"it is impossible to retrieve the list of new packages from the media 'update_source'. either this update media is misconfigured, and in this case you should use the software media manager, to remove and re-add it in order to reconfigure it, either it is currently unreachable, or try again later"

why would this just 'happen' all the sudden,. I followed the directions, and removed and re added trying with every source it lists, and now it wont even let me add it back on again with the same exact settings that worked before,,, any suggestions? I see some people posted they had problems with it as well, but over a week, come on.....
