Apt upgrade

Has anyone been able to use the apt upgrade method to Hamm? I get all
sorts of problems. First of all the installed system says it wants perl
5.004 I think. It has the following questions
	require 5.004;
Now my poor self is trying to reamin truly Debian and I have not seen perl
version 5.004. 

Then it complains about there not being File::stat; I guess its because
there is no correct perl version. 

Secondly using the sources.list file
deb http://ftp1.us.debian.org/debian frozen main contrib non-free
deb ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian frozen main contrib non-free
deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US unstable/binary-$(ARCH)/

which was the example file posted by someone on how to upgrade using apt I
get the following error messages:
Fetched 1420k in 0s (4282k/s)                                                   
Updating package file cache...
E: Opening
- ifstream::ifstream (2 No such file or directory)

Anybody knows what is going on? And where can I get the required version
of perl short of compiling one myself.
