I figured I will answer my own question in case anyone else has this issue. Forum moderators, feel free to delete this post if it would be better.
I fortunately stumbled into the PCLinux OS Magazine tonight. In the September 2010 issue. On page 18 (http://pclosmag.com/html/Issues/201009/page18.html
) there is a wonderful article written by djohnston titled "Repo Spotlight: Repository Speed Test".
to get correct repositories simply follow his advice. The Rest of the program walks you through.
I do not intend to post what is already well written, but I will post the beginning for Synaptic to collect new repositories. I hope this may help others if they run into this issue.
djohnston, if you happen to read this post, thank you for the Great Article.
Also for the PCLinuxOS Magazine Personnel - you are a great resource.
"In the PCLinuxOS menu, under Applications > Software Center, is the item Repository Speed Test. This item is used to download a list of current official repositories for PCLinuxOS, then test each repository for both connectivity, and for the network speed of each repository connection over the internet. To begin the test, select the item from the menu. Once started, the window below will be shown."
