dist-upgrade libsnmp-base debian-desktop rep problem

I tried this...
apt-get dist-upgrade

then the output was...
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Calculating Upgrade... Done
The following packages will be upgraded:
1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 1154kB of archives.
After unpacking 86.0kB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] y
Get:1 sarge/main libsnmp-base [1154kB]
Fetched 1B in 0s (1B/s)
Failed to fetch Size mismatch
E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

so I installed the deb package itself with kpackage and still gives the same error, what went wrong, any ideas...
kernel is 2.6.8

by the way when running apt-get update says this...

Hit sarge/main Packages
Hit sarge/main Release
Hit sarge/main Packages
Ign sarge/main Release
Hit ./. Packages
Ign ./. Release
Hit sarge/main Packages
Ign sarge/main Release
Reading Package Lists... Done
the ones I erased were the official packages...

oh lastly my sources.list is

# Official Debian archives
deb stable/updates main contrib non-free
deb stable main contrib non-free

deb sarge main

# deb sarge-backports main contrib non-free

# deb stable main non-free contrib
