Unable to fetch any news

I am using calibre 0.7.18 on ubuntu 10.10 and I have been unable to fetch any recipe. I have tried both the graphical interface and the command line utility, as well as various feeds (bbc, etc). I seem to get connection time-outs, but my internet connection is working (around 2mbps).
Here's an example:
Code:

Uninstall your distro provided package and use the official calibre binary from calibre-ebook.com/download_linux

Thanx for the help, but it turns out I shouldn't have bothered you. After several failed attempts to download the binary, I finally realized that it was a problem with my internet connection after all. I switched to using my phone's connection, and everything started working fine.
I still don't understand what the problem is, but it obviously isn't calibre's fault.
