Oh, of course the file is there and accesible via browser, but that tells
you little because you are connected to a "dynamic" mirror, it redirects
you to a different server every time:

Okay, you can try with a different mirror. Edit your "sources.list" file
and keep only this line (comment out "#" the rest):
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main non-free
Then jump to a console and run:
apt-get update && apt-get -V dist-upgrade
And put here the output.

That would make sense if "apt-get" worked. If apt-get fails in the same
way, you're stuck at the same "unknown" point :-)
