What does /etc/debian.version say?

You have mostly stable lines, which mean that you'll have been upgraded
as new stable releases occur. OTOH, you have some woody lines, and
woody precedes Sarge, so the original install was probably woody.
You may by now have some sort of mixed system.
What happens if you try doing a full upgrade (changing everything
to stable) using aptitude or apt-get?
