I believe that the above-flagged problem is similar to the one that I
posted to this thread.

But either I have not understand the suggested solution or the
solution is nonviable with my setup.  

The only entries on my "/etc/apt/sources.list" relate to my DVDs. The
reason is that my connection to the Internet is too slow for viable
online "dist upgrades"; and even if an online "aptitude update"
actually managed to go to completion, I would just end up with an
out-of-sync setup.

Is there any available strategy that applies to cases like mine?
