OK, I've got another tip for this command too. (Should have read the
whole thread before my last reply!)

If you use the -O (minus sign then capital 'oh', not zero) on the wget
command, you can give it the name of the file to write out. That
simplifies the following line:

> sudo mv pastebin.php\?dl\=f3944dadb /etc/apt/sources.list

So I would have replaced those two lines with the following:

wget http://pastebin.com/pastebin.php?dl=f3944dadb -O newsources.list
sudo mv newsources.list /etc/apt/sources.list

> sudo aptitude update
> sudo aptitude dist-upgrade
> Again, if you have any errors put them on PasteBin.
