You have to do:
Setup - asks user for various pieces of info and only checks to see
if the distributions you asked for are there.
Update - this downloads the package files and uses dpkg to update the
available package lists
Select - (nothing to do with dpkg-ftp)
Install - should then download any new packages and install them
Which option failed to work and which version are you using?
