Sorry, apt is already the newest version

That's strange. Stable has apt 0.3.19; testing has apt 0.5.4. This
have worked. Perhaps apt is among the "5 not upgrade" packages, for some
reason? You could work around this by installing the new apt (and its
dependencies) through "dpkg".

There is a simple way... do apt-get -v

What is the output? What version does it report?

spaz:~# apt-get -v
apt 0.3.19 for i386 compiled on May 12 2000  21:17:27

Then we'll know all.
