We maintain a Debian box for internal testing of some 
code; Assuming the /etc/apt/sources.list is intact, as root:

apt-get update
apt-get update

should do most things; if you get messages about packages 
being held back from upgrades, contact me off list (as these 
are after all Debian type issues), but basically,

dpkg --remove
 	- and -
dpkg --configure -a

are your friends.
