Problems/Errors with Sources.List


I'm trying to update my slightly outdated computer running a mix of debian stable/testing to completely testing. However, even though I only have one file open on sources.list I'm still getting errors.

aroot@raikunite:/home/knoppix# apt-get update
Get:1 http://http.us.debian.org testing/main Packages [2892kB]
99% [1 Packages gzip 0] [Waiting for headers] 5569B/s 0s

Reading Package Lists... Done
W: Couldn't stat source package list http://http.us.debian.org testing/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/http.us.debian.org_debian_dists_testing_main_binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
W: Couldn't stat source package list http://http.us.debian.org testing/contrib Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/http.us.debian.org_debian_dists_testing_contrib_binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
W: Couldn't stat source package list http://http.us.debian.org testing/non-free Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/http.us.debian.org_debian_dists_testing_non-free_binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

It's those to be precise. How can I get rid of those errors so I can finally run apt-get update and have it actually update! Thank you very much.

I think your problem lies in the address you are using. i.e. You should be using the format http://ftp.us.debian.org/...
