There is something I'm not getting right with the debian package system, I'm pretty confident that the jigdo program is contained in the Debian repository system (https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=jigdo&searchon=names&suite=jessie&section=all) yet when I try apt-get install jigdo-file it says unable to locate jigdo-file package.

My source.list is :

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 8.3.0 _Jessie_ - Official amd64 xfce-CD Binary-1 20160123-19:00]/ jessie main

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 8.3.0 _Jessie_ - Official amd64 xfce-CD Binary-1 20160123-19:00]/ jessie main

deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main

# jessie-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
# A network mirror was not selected during install.  The following entries
# are provided as examples, but you should amend them as appropriate
# for your mirror of choice.

# deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ jessie-updates main
# deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ jessie-updates main

deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ jessie-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ jessie-updates main

I do apt-get update clean whatever and it still won't find it. What am I missing ? Thanks

Your sources.list seems to have jessie-updates (previously known as "volatile") and jessie security, but you're missing the normal jessie sources.

Adding:

deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free

and doing apt-get update ought to fix it.
