Brian is right servers that use Vhost's will have apache configure to point to each directory by domain instead of IP. the ip will just give you the default domain of the computer
usually localhost.
try using a mirror if there is one, or even better
edit your /etc/hosts file and add:

that will make your system resolve to the right IP for that domain.

$ host is an alias for has address

$ host
Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

Do you see the problem, and why a DNS solution was suggested?

Alternatively, as a test, try substituting the IP address in your /etc/apt/sources.list for "" and see if that

That won't work - the archive vhosts aren't setup to support that, and
I don't have the access required to fix it.
