Well, actually you are not up-to-date at all - this is because you
choose to run the oldstable Debian release.

This also means you're missing most of the bug fixes that have happened
in 2.8 since 2.8.2 has been released (minus some security fixes, maybe).

Did this train lose its conductor a few stops back?  Or how can I back it 
up to when it Just Worked(TM) quite a bit of the time?

You should check whether you can and want to upgrade to a more current
Debian release. Or, in train terms: check if you want to board a train
that is actually going somewhere, instead of the museum train that's
running around in circles on its closed track.
