Just istalled the latest debian with a graphical desktop environment and for some reason i cant install any thing.
apt-get install subversion - cannot be found. apt-get install synaptic - cannot be found. i run apt-get update laready apt-get install firefox-3.5 - will result the following output.

What do you think went wrong. I did that already in the past and i did not experienced such problems, could it be because the debian is under VirtualBox? Thanks
