You should involve your hosting company in this conversation, since your system is not "pure" Debian (as indicated by the non-Debian kernel). Is your server running any control panels such as CPanel or Plesk?

I'd make even more changes to this

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

# squeeze-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stable-updates main
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stable-proposed-updates non-free contrib main
deb ftp://ftp.deb-multimedia.org stable main non-free
If you want an updated version of Mozilla check this page out for instructions.

Also if you want to remain on stable understand you will go from Gnome 2.30 to Gnome 3.4 (I think it's 3.4) and it is different. If you want the look and feel of Gnome2 add the MATE repository and install MATE 1.6 after the upgrade but do your research before you consider that.

Using "stable" in the sources file will result in the system trying to upgrade to wheezy in the next few weeks...

Thus the warning to do some research.

He did say he wanted to stay with stable.

Yes this Debian server has Plesk but actually I noticed that my other VPS with Ubuntu and with no control Panel looks similar =

Debian 5
Code:
$ uname -a
Linux vps-156xxxx-xx91.manage.myhosting.com 2.6.32-042stab063.2 #1 SMP Tue Oct 23 16:24:09 MSK 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux
$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.32-042stab063.2 (root@rh6-build-x64) (gcc version 4.4.6 20120305 (Red Hat 4.4.6-4) (GCC) ) #1 SMP Tue Oct 23 16:24:09 MSK 2012
$
Ubuntu 12
Code:
$ uname -a
Linux vps-45xxxxxx-xxx6.manage.myhosting.com 2.6.32-042stab074.10 #1 SMP Fri Mar 1 09:18:44 MSK 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
$  cat /proc/version

I have zero personal experience with the Plesk+Debian combo (the Plesk system I administered in the past was CentOS) but I believe the fact Plesk is installed complicates the updates. If you are using an older Lenny-based Plesk then it will keep adding those "lenny" lines to your sources.list, I believe. I think you need to disable Plesk, upgrade Debian, and then install newer Plesk for whichever version of Debian you choose. But this is not something I would do without having a long conversation with my hosting company, and thorough testing on a non-production server.

If you think of your Plesk VPS as a Debian-based "fork" or "hybrid" OS (with some Debian packages, some Plesk packages, and some packages from the hosting company) then you can address the situation from the right angle.

Ok thanks. I will come back to trying the upgrade after I have moved the important stuff to the new server.

Anyway is there anything unusual in my kernel on both Debian and Ubuntu being 2.6.32 or in $ cat /proc/version mentioning Red Hat?

Thanks...

"Unusual" only in the sense you are running a bespoke linux provided by your VPS.
