before you blame the ISP, try
Code: Select all
apt-get update

then try the install again. i had the same thing happen when i was trying to install something, and the file it couldn't find was out of date.

When you see 404 errors please run apt-get update. The most likely explanation is that your package lists are out of date compared to what is on the servers.

IF you STILL get errors after running apt-get update please try retriving the files manually with wget and post the complete output of those attempts.
