i'm running Apache 2 on Debian at my VPS. Naturally i have problem with restricted GD-library of my php package and i need to fix it (i need imagerotate() function). Before installing php-gd pugin it's necessary to update php 5.2 to php 5.3

my /etc/apt/sources.list is:

#deb lenny main contrib non-free
#deb lenny/updates main contrib non-free
#deb lenny main
#deb-src lenny/volatile main contrib

deb stable all
deb-src stable all

The problem comes after apt-get dist-ugprade executing:

/$ apt-get update
Hit stable Release.gpg
Hit stable Release
Ign stable/all Packages/DiffIndex
Ign stable/all Sources/DiffIndex
Hit stable/all Packages
Hit stable/all Sources
Reading package lists...
/$ apt-get dist-ugprade
E: Invalid operation dist-ugprade

What can cause this problem? How much should i wait while Reading package lists...? Is there any simple guideline for further php-gd installation?

You made a typo: dist-upgrade (in upgrade)
