Update Nessus in debian

Hi ..Iam using nessusd on my debian sarge box..
I suscribed to the plugin feed and had a problem to solve it I have to update to > 2.2.4 . I have currently nessusd version 2.2.3 installed. If I execute apt-get update
apt-get install nessusd -> I get "nessusd is already the newest version."

Is there any solution to that aside from installing from source.?

If you have 14 Debian cds, and you are using those as your repositories for new packages, that is why you have old software, and not the newest packages available. You need to add some repositories to your /etc/apt/sources.list that are servers on the internet. You could always download the deb packages of nessus and then install them with this command `dpkg -i packagename.deb`, but then you will have to get each dependency package, and if there are many, it can be a real pain in the ass. After you add new Debian repositories to your /etc/apt/sources.list run `apt-get update` as root.
