There are some manuals in network, but all think that debian still maintain mirrors for 6.0

However at current moment there are no squeeze on debian repos.

So how to update current server to something maintainlible if mirrors not availible?

Debian Squeeze has reached EOL, it doesn't receive any security updates, but if you need to update your database and install packages, its repositories can be found on Debian Archive.

You should edit your sources.list as bellow:

deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main non-free contrib

Also you need to comment out all other repositories.

To update run:

apt-get install debian-archive-keyring
apt-get update


As time goes on we will expire the binary packages for old releases. Currently we have binaries for squeeze, lenny, etch, sarge, woody, potato, slink, hamm and bo available, and only source code for the other releases.

If you are using APT the relevant sources.list entries are like:

 deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ hamm contrib main non-free


 deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ bo bo-unstable contrib main non-free

You can't. Squeeze is no longer supported.

To receive updates you must upgrade Squeeze to Wheezy, which itself is only in long term support, and thence to the current stable, Jessie.

Even Squeeze LTS is unsupported now, but if you kept it upgraded while it was supported, you should have a system that can be upgraded to Wheezy, using the standard procedure, but it's probably not well tested. And Wheezy is only on long term support now, so unless you have very special needs you should go for Jessie, and it might just be faster and easier to reinstall.
