It looks like the web links are fine. From what you tell me you have the
wrong /etc/apt/sources.list installed and you are probably going to end
up upgrading to 8.0 :-)

Make sure that what you have is:

# Package repository URLs 
# Planet CCRMA for RedHat 7.3 and single processor machines

rpm http://www-ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/apt redhat/7.3/en/i386 os
rpm http://www-ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/apt redhat/7.3/en/i386
rpm http://www-ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/apt redhat/7.x/en/i386
rpm http://www-ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/apt redhat/7.x.up/en/i386
rpm http://www-ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/apt redhat/7.3/en/i386

No references to "8.0" should appear on this file. 
Do an apt-get update and all will be (I hope) fine.
