It seems that Debian Lenny is not supported any more. As indicated here, it is supported until 2012-02-06.

Thank you very much, but it means I can't install this package now? I have to upgrade first to an other 'supported' version? – user968898 Apr 18 '12 at 10:01
Yes, you can not install new packages. You have to upgrade to a supported version. – Khaled Apr 18 '12 at 10:20
