Are you sure i cannot go back to stable ?


Upgrading a system to the stable, testing, or unstable distribution
may require several steps which must be in the following order:

    * Upgrade to Woody (if your system is older than Woody)

    * Upgrade to stable

    * Upgrade to testing

    * Upgrade to unstable

Debian does not support upgrades that skip intermediate releases.
