Post Lenny Archive Repositories
For other dinosaurs like me, who are still clinging to SM 8.X, here's some information:

Since Lenny has attained EOL, the Lenny repositories have been moved to archive. Update your /etc/apt/sources.list accordingly:

Code:
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ lenny main non-free contrib
deb-src http://archive.debian.org/debian/ lenny main non-free contrib
# Security:
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian-security/ lenny/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://archive.debian.org/debian-security/ lenny/updates main contrib non-free
# Volatile:
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main contrib non-free
deb-src http://archive.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main contrib non-free


Of course, don't expect to see any package updates in the future, but it's nice to know the older packages are still available for the time being (in case you have to reinstall your system). ATM I'm pretty sure the Lenny multimedia repository is still in its old location.

The 'Security' and 'Volatile' repo entries you're showing weren't (or won't be) moved to archive.debian.org, they will simply no longer exist.

That's funny, because when I did a "Reload" in Synaptic all the repositories shown loaded just fine.

I'm sorry I was looking here: http://archive.debian.org/debian/dists/ and didn't see any Lenny "Security" or "Volatile" repos.

Looking here http://archive.debian.org/debian-security/dists/, for "Security" for instance, I do see that a Lenny repo exists.

It is probably safe to say though that you won't see any further updates from it or the "Volatile" repo.
