ok, thank you. Now I'm having problems in installing nearly any new packages while jailed within etch:

# apt-get install dpkg-dev
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  dpkg-dev: Depends: dpkg (>= 1.13.20) but it is not going to be installed
            Depends: perl5
            Depends: perl-modules but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

here is my /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian etch main contrib #non-free
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian etch main contrib #non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib #non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib #non-free

what may be missing or misconfigured?
