This is probably because Squeeze is no longer supported at the address.
I am wondering if there is some other address I could use that would allow me to upgrade to Wheezy, after which I should be able to use the normal root. Unfortunately this device has no connections, such as USB or CD drive to install a newer version of Debian through, so whatever I do must be through the internet.
Upgrades to Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 from the previous release, Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 (codenamed “Lenny”), are automatically handled by the apt-get package management tool for most configurations.
Debian 6.0 introduces a dependency based boot system, making system start-up faster and more robust due to parallel execution of boot scripts and correct dependency tracking between them.This means that updates for known security issues will no longer be produced and over time, a server running this version will become vulnerable to being exploited.Squeeze was released in 2011 and was our recommended distribution at the time, however if you're still running it now is the time to upgrade to a new version.Most of the actions listed in this post are written with the assumption that they will be executed by the root user running the bash or any other modern shell.The official Debian document recommends: The main things you’ll want to back up are the contents of /etc, /var/lib/dpkg, /var/lib/apt/extended_states and the output of dpkg –get-selections “*” (the quotes are important).
