Re: does this /etc/apt/sources.list look okay?

This is my /etc/apt/sources.list file:

    deb ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/ stable main
    deb-src ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/ stable main

    deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main

That was created by Debian Stable after a fresh install.  It seems
rather sparse. After past installs of earlier versions the file had more
entries, iirc.

Also, I don't seem to be getting any updates after running:

sudo apt-get check
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Am I missing some important or at least useful entries?

Looks good to me, unless you want non-free stuff or good multimedia
support. About the updating part, I'm not sure since I don't use
stable. How long ago you updated the list?
You also seem to go through a lot of steps; If you update regurlarly,
why not just do the update, and then the upgrade?
