The problem is that the package lists are updated, but the packages themselves 
are not yet all on the mirror => apt tries to download packages from the 
primary server == download is slow. Unfortunately, this also slows 
synchronization to mirror. So it becomes a little vicious circle.

Although you can switch directly to the mirror, but for packages that are not 
yet available on the mirror you will receive http error 404. However, yes, 
this would reduce the load on line to primary server.

Alternatively, you can temporarily switch to the preliminary stable builds 
repository, where are now also R14.0.1 - compiled from identical source 
packages as is on the official build farm.
