Once you've resolved the issue with you mirror then yes.

I see you have
        DebianMirrorHost otc-mirrors.sh.intel.com/pub/mirrors

DebianMirrorHost needs to literally be the host, not with the path too.
        DebianMirrorHost otc-mirrors.sh.intel.com
        DebianMirrorSubpath /pub/mirrors

That needs to point to what would be the equivalent of
ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ -- I don't know the layout of your mirror but
I'd be surprised if you didn't also need a trailing /debian on the path.
