Hi. You'd have to download 7's ISOs.

Debian always only updates the installed packages (how would a not installed package be upgraded in the first place?). If you have the DVDs use apt-cdrom to add them to your sources.list. Then do the upgrade, but not before reading the release notes. Keep in mind that Debian is already at version 7.2, so you might have to upgrade further if you have older versions of the DVDs.
