I'd like to install rsync to do daily backups of my client's server account, which was recently migrated to mycloud.rackspace.com. Rackspace does have a tutorial implying it can be installed in the usual fashion:
My problem seems to be that it's an old linux build. uname -a shows:
Linux xxxx 18.104.22.168-xen #1 SMP Sun Sep 30 04:00:13 UTC 2007 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I tried to add backports to the apt sources list:
# cat /etc/apt/sources.list deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ etch main deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ etch main deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib deb-src http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports squeeze-backports main contrib
However, I get the same "not found" errors with, it appears, no attempt to grab the backport. "aptitude update" does not help:

Any advice? Thanks!
