When I try and access the java packages on deb http://ubuntu-backports.mirrormax.net/ hoary-extras main universe multiverse restricted

I am getting this error:

W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

Anyone have a clue? Been this way for several days.

http://ubuntu-backports.mirrormax.net/dists/hoary-backports/*/binary-i386/ has no files.

the server doesn't seem to contain anything at all but directories.

not sure why you're using it, but there is probably no reason.

(1) Hoary Backports on mirrormax.net has been discontinued at developers' request. See the sticky in the parent forum for new repository URL's

(2) Java packages have been pulled because it is illegal for me to package Sun Java (license agreement issues). Same goes with w32codecs and friends. See the PLF's efforts for alternative URL's.
