if your /etc/apt/sources.list already has a list of repositories...just do this

su
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

else 1st find a sources.list from the net...preferably using the debian official mirrors or any regularly updated mirrors near you

Yes, this means that your system is up to date.

Notice, however, that this does not mean that you have the latest versions of the packages (particularly if you installed Debian stable) and are using those repositories.

gettign no lines after update means your sources.list is empty

put these 3 lines ion your /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US stable/non-US main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org stable/updates main contrib non-free

then do update and upgrade
