Non-free updates?


I installed the flashplugin-nonfree from aptitude in Debian Squeeze. However, when I do aptitude update, I didn't get any flash updates. The Debian packages lists the version that I have as the updated version.

However, if I run flashplugin-nonfree update, it updates the flash player to the latest version.


Does this apply to the other non free sources as well? I have wireless firmware installed for my 5100 card, do I need to do something similar?

This are my sources:
Code:
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main

deb http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main

# squeeze-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze-updates main
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze-updates main
Do I need to add the non-free updates to that list? (if so, what exactly should I add)

add contrib non-free to every line.
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

to update flash run:
update-flashplugin-nonfree --install

this command does not apply to other packages.
