Hrmm.. just to add to the confusion. I just checked my sources.list and saw I 
was using single slash. I did man sources.list to see if I was going out of 
my mind. I'm not.

I have never had to do that. If I comment out all lines in sources.list 
except my local mirror and do dselect|update I get to see everything in 
there. I'm not sure this is the problem. I just checked your apt-move.conf
again and noticed a couple of problems:

ARCHS="alpha arm hurd-i386 i386 m68k powerpc sparc"
Do you really have all these installed ;-)

This should be testing. At least, that's what your sources.list points to. 
They need to be the same.
