As because the installation was from a DVD the installer can not setup 
the connection during installation though the sources.list file was
created with proper address of mirrors,you could not be connected with
mirrors.So the line "# Line commented out by installer because.... ".
But you should have access to any site including debian.org after
installation and link/net setup.Check the connection and then open
http//www.debian.org and http://www.debian.org/mirror/list.
If it is found OK then try with Synaptic or aptitude(preferable in shell
use 'aptitude update' and then 'aptitude safe-upgrade').
Your sources.list file is OK.

Best regard,
G. Nath.
