the friend sent me a tgz of the whole /etc/apt directory,
and I attached to the first email (but I forgot to talk about

In /etc/apt/sources.list  there are
  deb http://debian.fastweb.it/debian/ stable main 
  deb-src http://debian.fastweb.it/debian/ stable main 
  deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main
and there is not mention of testing.
