I had the same problem when I installed the i386 edition yesterday. These are the default resources in my /etc/apt/sources.list.
# deb cdrom:[gNewSense 3.0 Parkes - Build i386 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20130805-18:58]/ parkes main

deb cdrom:[gNewSense 3.0 Parkes - Build i386 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20130805-18:58]/ parkes main

deb http://beta.gnewsense.org/gnewsense-three/gnewsense parkes-security main

deb-src http://beta.gnewsense.org/gnewsense-three/gnewsense parkes-security main

# parkes-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
# A network mirror was not selected during install. The following entries
# are provided as examples, but you should amend them as appropriate
# for your mirror of choice.

deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ parkes-updates main
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ parkes-updates main
I think the problem may have been caused by my election not to configure networking at install.

Obviously the XX should be replaced with country code; in an ideal world this would be automatically generated by the installer.

Default (on amd64 at least) contains:

As per Main/ReposRefs, it should be:

This will also take load off the main servers by automatically selecting and using a mirror.
