Please read this from the Debian forums;
Security updates are not handled in a timely manner for Debian unstable (ie. Sid)
Just remove/comment the security line in /apt/sources.list and you should be OK.
I would recommend the following site to generate a clean /etc/apt/sources.list;
Voila! here is an example I just generated;
deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free deb-src http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ Sid-updates main contrib non-free deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ Sid-updates main contrib non-free
Hope this helps...
Hmm...well I will try and help;
If you have changed your sources to SId then fire up smxi;
Upgrade as per the script...
Once the upgrade has completed proceed to graphics section and choose a driver for your graphics card...some of them will not work...but do not give up hope
If you reboot and end up at the command line you can fire up smxi with;
and run through the script again to the graphics section.
Try another driver and rinse and repeat.
Honestly, in my opinion 'smxi' is the coolest thing in computing apart from CTRL C/CTRL V
Give the script a couple more tries before you ditch it.

I would be interested in how you get on with smxi...sometimes it takes a little time to crack it...bon courage!)

Been tracking this release for quiet a time now....
I really am looking forward to this release and then I can chill to retirement days...stable I hope
Not just for Debian but for all the folks waiting to release their 'distrolets'.....
It must be tomorrow???
Very nice desktop.
I live with a poster above my desk in my study of 'Queen - It's a Kind of Magic Tour 1986'
Yes, I was there in '86 @ the 'old' Wembley Stadium, London...the #1 concert I have seen, thus far, in my life
The DVD is special, because it was one of the first to feature 'noise cancelling' tech in the audio recording....
