No idea what protocol 93 is (it's not listed in /etc/protocols). FTP
should use the tcp protocol (6).

But what is dselect using to get packages? CD-ROM? Based on
sources.list below, did dselect work with apt-get from CD-ROM?

Maybe you can use http://... instead of ftp. Does it make a difference?
Do you have some funky /etc/apt/apt.conf ? A broken apt.conf will cause
