Are you behind a firewall? Do you have a proxy that you must go through to get access to the web? The ppm application may need to be told about your proxies before it will be able to access the package repositories.

Did you get your proxy set up so it allowed PPM to access the repositories?

I think you should close this question (you can ask in Community Support to have your points refunded) and ask a your new question in a _new_ question. I certainly don't recognize that Apache error message, but if you posted over in the Apache section, you'll probably be noticed by someone who does recognize it:
