The above is not related to the warning below. Compare the server names
and suite names between the two.

It's not really either of those, but rather due to your sources.list
containing an entry for debian-mirror.lrz.de for the "stable-updates"

that's therefore what appears in the Release file. Changing
sources.list to point at squeeze-updates instead should make the warning
