Try a different mirror, I used http://cran-mirror.cs.uu.nl/. When you try
apt-get update, you'll get a warning (that's better than an error ;) 
W: GPG error: http://cran-mirror.cs.uu.nl hardy/ Release: The following
signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available:

To solve this, run:
> gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv E2A11821
> gpg --export --armor E2A11821 | sudo apt-key add -

apt-get update, and you should be able to install r-base (and any other
packages you need).
