If you have ssh server and xterm installed, you can:
- run xterm
- ssh root at localhost
- cp  /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.oryg
- add all repositories you want or copy from internet ready file
- or if you have already "extended" version: cp
/etc/apt/sources.list."extended" /etc/apt/sources.list
- apt-get update
Usually if something is wrong with repositories sites/files/keys  it
shows some error and it helps with further investigation.
