This is the other line you need. You should probably place it right at the
top of your sources.list:

Well, yes, I've got the impression that the CD sets are less likely to
have broken depends, given that they have been compiled with the idea of
bringing things into a releasable state. Therefore doing a complete
reinstall from a CD set may sometimes be easier than dist-upgrading.
I don't know how well dist-upgrading from one CD set to another works. Has
anyone ever tested?
