Upgrade failed due to 'held packages'
I've been using Debian Etch for the past one year. In one of my amd64 machines, I installed Lenny using the first DVD. Now, how can I install software in repositories? Should I add corresponding entries to the sources.list file? If so, please tell what they are. In addition, using kpackage, I tried to upgrade the system via internet. It produced an error message, whose details I list below as it is.
< export DEBIAN_FRONTEND; apt-get dist-upgrade;echo RESULT=$?

Please help me.
