I've recently installed a fresh copy of Proxmox 2.0 Beta 3 and ran into trouble installing some packages. Here are some errors after various commands

# apt-get update
Hit [URL][/URL] squeeze/pve amd64 Packages

E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

Sure enough the url in question is not available. Could debian be down?

To Fix....

I changed sources.list:
# nano /etc/sources/sources.list

From :deb squeeze main contribTo: deb squeeze main contrib

Followed by:
# apt-get update

.....And everything worked!
