Is anyone else noticing problems getting certain packages?

When I do apt-get it hangs while connecting to gb.archive.ubuntu.com. I've pinged the IP and it's responsive (As is the fqn)

I'm having problems with:
build-essential
ubuntu-restricted-extras

An apt-cache search shows they're there. So I'm a little confused.

Is it timing out or anything? Just give it some time, most likely all the servers are being pounded by everyone downloading Hardy.

My thoughts as well, it just completed Wine.
So perhaps it is just busy!

Incidentally, didn't build-essential used to be located on the distro CD/DVD?
Perhaps this was cause I downloaded the torrent release before link from official site was up.
