    Judging from the age of the kernel, I assume you're using Debian Etch, which has reached end of life. The repository mirror you're using no longer hosts Etch packages.

    I would install the current Debian stable or other current distro.

    Otherwise, edit your /etc/apt/sources.list to use the archived mirrors.
