Trouble with "port selfupdate"

Hi,

I'm using Mac 10.6.3. I'm trying to execute a "port selfupdate" command without success. Below is what I get. Any ideas how I can troubleshoo this problem?

Error messages and contents of my /opt/local/etc/macports/sources.conf are below.

davea-mbp2:src davea$ sudo port selfupdate

I would guess that each of your mirrors are unreachable. Blocked by ISP? Can you ping any of those addresses?

The only source I have is: "rsync://rsync.macports.org/release/ports/ [default]"
You might try adding that to the list, but more generically try posting to the macports-users@lists.macosforge.org list.
