You need to change you sources. The AMD64 sources are no longer there they have been incorporated into the standard mirrors. Do a search of this forum and you will find several post regarding this.

I tried changing it as suggested in other threads, but I still get lots of errors. How do I know which sites to use and what I need in sources.lst?

Check out the sticky at the top of this forum and enter the lines exactly like they are in that thread. Also try removing the / between sid and the type.

The line should look like this:

deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ sid main contrib non-free

Try the following as root. Make sure you have sudo installed first.

1) open the Konsole, type su and enter your root password
2) then type: gpg --keyserver wwwkeys.eu.pgp.net --recv-keys 2D230C5F
3) then type: gpg --armor --export 2D230C5F | sudo apt-key add -
4) and finally: apt-get update

Try:

apt-get clean
apt-get update

if that does not work try searching the forums for "/etc/apt/preferences" to make sure yours has not been corrupted.
