 From Jarod's guide

The adventurous people out there might want to enable at-testing and 
install medley-package-config to get the old default sources.list that 
has a myriad of repositories pre-configured. The less-adventurous can 
skip on down to the next section. If you want to take the plunge, then 
edit /etc/apt/sources.list, replacing at-stable with at-testing. After 
that, run these commands:

# apt-get update
# apt-get install medley-package-config
# mv /etc/apt/sources.list.rpmnew /etc/apt/sources.list
# apt-get update"

Did you by chance do that, and get the larger sources.list?  If not, 
then thats most likely why you arent finding it.
