Changing sources.list doesn't update the package lists.

It looks like you want to Adept -> Fetch Updates and go from there, but I am

If all else fails, you can edit sources.list, then

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

which will get you completely up to date with all the latest versions of 
packages in the repository.  From there, you can install missing applications 
on an as-needed basis, probably even using the graphical tools like Adept and 
Synaptic.  Definitely with apt-get and aptitude.
