dselect has an "Update" option which will grab the latest packages list. It
does this by looking at /etc/apt/sources.list . This file tells dselect
(along with all the debian packaging tools, such as aptitude and apt) where
to get these files from. The file should look something like:

deb ftp://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free

take a look at the sources.list man pages for more info. Also, you might find
you'll get better and/or quicker responses sending messages to debian-user
rather than debian-security, as this isn't really a security-related question
(certainly not directly, anyway).
