I've seen this problem before and it was related to firewall/proxy
rules and was fixed by changing to a faster mirror (this was a laptop,
so it was also fixed by moving that machine to a network outside of
that particular proxy).

Also, did you change to an HTTP mirror or FTP mirror?  Please try an
FTP mirror and let us know how that works.
