Yes, I misunderstood you in your original posting, I thought you were
using the testing distribution in your sources.list file but you are
still using the stable one which only has v6.1.
If you want to install a package from testing follow the instructions
In fact it would do you a lot of good to read that whole document, it
would clear up a few things about how the packaging system in debian
works and how to use apt-get to manipulate your packages.
