| I always strictly avoided the Ubuntu tool because one of the steps it

| good reason for causing conflicts during the dist-upgrade.
|
| Instead, I use the classic Debian way == change the distribution name in
| all apt sources lists and then the common procedure:
|
| apt-get udpate
| apt-get upgrade
| apt-get clean
| apt-get dist-upgrade
| apt-get clean
| apt-get autoremove

well, i'm about ready to push the button on this and before doing so (in 
hope of avoiding irrational and panicked "what did i do wrong" posts to 
the list!) i thought i'd post the contents of my /etc/apt/sources.list 
file, in case i'm missing something obvious here it is:
