Severity: important

http://www.debian.org/security/ says

    You may find it convenient to use apt to get the latest security
    updates. This requires a line such as deb
    http://security.debian.org/ stable updates in your
    /etc/apt/sources.list file.

I wanted to get security updates for my potato machine, so I made the
obvious change to that line -- I tried

    http://security.debian.org/ potato updates

However, that didn't work; here's what I saw:

    07:56:02 [root@potato offby1]# apt-get update

    W: Couldn't stat source package list 'http://security.debian.org potato/updates Packages' (/var/state/apt/lists/security.debian.org_dists_potato_updates_binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
    W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these missing files
    E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Through trial and error, I determined that the correct line is 

    deb http://security.debian.org/ potato updates/contrib updates/main updates/non-free

Perhaps this means that the text on http://www.debian.org/security/ is
incorrect; or perhaps it means that the updates for potato are in the
wrong place.  But in any case, I shouldn't have had to experiment as I
did in order to determine the correct line for /etc/apt/sources.list;
I should have been able to copy the correct line directly from the
text on http://www.debian.org/security/.
