@Riccardo Murri: The browser works fine. In fact, the solution turned out to be rather simple, see the edit. Thanks for your suggestions anyway!

Thanks for a suggestion! Actually, I tried adding this line to /etc/apt/apt.conf before asking here. Right now the line is there (I recall I had to create the file manually), and it still doesn't work.

1. No, I'm unable to download packages. When I start the Update Manager, Click "check", type the password, it fails to download anything and pops up an err window "Could not download all repository indexes". There it lists individual packages, like this: "Failed to fetch archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/dists/karmic/partner/binary-i386/… 409 Conflict [IP: <ip here> 80]"
