You already admitted that you have a non-standard setup. Besides of that 
it's a "VPS" of unknown origin and type. Do you consider this standard? 
Nobody here can know which parts are non-standard. But it's obvious that 
there is more non-standard than you think. Remember, others do not have 
this problem.

What's non standard in my install other

I already told you what *I* would check *first*. This may not be the right 
track, but nevertheless: Did you?

Apart from that, as you have "inherited" a VPS. What is that? Do you rent 
it from a hosting provider? If so, and keeping in mind that there's 
obviously a problem with opening more threads (fastestmirror will open 
simultaneous download threads to several repo's to find out the fastest): 
Have you considered asking your provider the obvious?
