I tried changing my mirror to http://ubuntu.media.mit.edu in the
Ubuntu tool that Steve mentioned "Software Sources" doing this is
certainly quicker that changing lines manually and it includes lines
like

deb http://ubuntu.media.mit.edu/ubuntu/ lucid-security main restricted
deb-src http://ubuntu.media.mit.edu/ubuntu/ lucid-security main
restricted
deb http://ubuntu.media.mit.edu/ubuntu/ lucid-security universe
deb-src http://ubuntu.media.mit.edu/ubuntu/ lucid-security universe
deb http://ubuntu.media.mit.edu/ubuntu/ lucid-security multiverse
deb-src http://ubuntu.media.mit.edu/ubuntu/ lucid-security multiverse

I had no difficulties running aptitude update from here (United
Kingdom)

I have resolved myself to downloading *.deb files and figuring out the
dependencies the hard way. Is there some trick to this to make it
easier to get all the dependencies by hand when aptitude is broken?
I tried something simple like bzflag wirhout a problem, but sun-java6-
jre is way too complicated!
