unable to upgrade packages using APT.

Hi all,
I'm trying to update the packages using APT. but it is not updating even
there are packages to update.

For testing out this iam using my local network.
The entry in sources.list file in the client machine is
deb http://aptserver/debs New/
the machine aptserver contains the packages in New/ directory.

the command
#apt-get update
works fine, it fetches the packages information and stores it in

then the command

#apt-get update
says that
Reading Package Lists...
Building Dependency Tree...
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

but the command
#apt-get install packageX
fetches the packageX from the server & installs it without any problem.

the problem iam not able to update my packages automatically by giving the
#apt-get update
#apt-get dist-update

what may be the problem.

If anyone who knows the solution for this & ready to reply for this mail
or to point an obvious mistake, then that would be great.
