Looks like you have DNS issues. Or change the gb.archive lines to uk.archive lines and see if that works. Although I suspect something fishy with your resolv.conf file..

Is your internet connection working properly? If it is, it could be that the mirror you are trying to access is down or not working properly. You could wait a few hours and try again or change your mirrors.
