That's the problem. cvs.debian.org does not know about a user "anonymous",
it's just the cvs server who allows anonymous access. So this should look like

cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.debian.org:/cvs/deity login
cvs logout apt 
(the login should save the -d parameter).

You should use ssh if you have non-anonymous (e.g. write access) to the tree.
