upgrade from etch to testing fails


Hi,
i am trying to upgrade a Debian system from etch to testing:
Code:
36163:~# uname -ar
Linux 36163.vs.webtropia.com 2.6.9-023stab044.11-entnosplit #1 SMP Sun Sep 30 12:28:38 MSD 2007 i686 GNU/Linux
However, it fails with the following output. Note: all other necessary packages have been installed during the previous "apt-get upgrade"; now -during the second "apt-get upgrade"- "apt" attempts to upgrade only the problematic "libsnmp-base" package...

Code:
...
The following packages will be upgraded:
  libsnmp-base
1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 346 not upgraded.
95 not fully installed or removed.
Need to get 0B/1368kB of archives.
After unpacking 455kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]? Y

1. Can you post your /etc/apt/sources.lst?
2. Have you tried apt-get dist-upgrade?
