What I generally do to check the status of the system and see if
everything is up-to-date and as it should be:

- check /etc/debian_version
- check /etc/apt/sources.list (also the easiest place to get the code
  name because I always forget the version numbers and you can
  immediately see which repositories are used)
- check /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
- use aptitude to see if anything is funny (obsolete or unused packages
- use apt-show-versions and some clever grepping to see where all
  packages come from (and whether they're up-to-date/obsolete/manually
  installed/outdated experimental/whatever)
