What bittorrent client are you using? It looks like several peers are connected successfully on that torrent, so I don't think it is a problem with the torrent. Are you making sure you try to seed with the torrent you downloaded from the thread?

You need to go to the thread and download the torrent in that thread and seed with it. Once you do that, you should stop getting that error.
