Updating etch to lenny

I had done all my previous attempts on ctrl alt f1 but have tried running gdm and am now in it (but things aren't perfect as previously stated). Can't locate File/in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.8 /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.8 /usr/share/perl/5.8 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at /usr/bin/defoma-app line 7.deb ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ lenny main deb-src ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ lenny main deb lenny/updates main deb-src lenny/updates main On the ctrl alt f1 terminal, apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade stopped working at some point and it forced me so I did put apt-get update -f && apt-get dist-upgrade -f and I did apt-get update -f && apt-get dist-upgrade -f again in gdm so I can copy paste results here. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/defoma-app line 7.
