What happened to my SuSE 9.3 Repositories?

I've been using Synaptic to install new programs. I attempted to install tovid but Synaptic said it couldn't get all the packages, so I reloaded the repos. indexes with

"apt-get update"

and almost all of my repos's come back "Could not download all repository indexes" Server closed the connection

What happened all of the sudden?

What do I need to do to fix this?

It happens to many these days.
the apt server is overloaded because of SuSE 10.0 release being downloaded.

We have to wait a few days.
If you are in a hurry to install a package, download it from a mirror and install it with YaST.
