hi, you need to update the packages list before doing an upgrade, have you run
Code:
aptitude update
first?

Maybe you should post your /etc/apt/sources.list & let someone check it out.

the sources look fine...and, as you might know, google doesn't help much, there are threads with similar issues but no solution.
I am afraid we have to consider the option of some problem with the hard disk and/or corrupted system...I would suggest to try booting from a live cd and run
Code:
fsck /dev/sda
(or sdX according to your HD naming) or
Code:
fsck -f /dev/sda
to force a full scan.

there is the Debian Live Project but I think you could do a check disk from any distro's live cd like *buntu or some Debian-based one like #!...

If using non-free you should add to the other 4 repos also.
Then aptitude update
