[R-sig-Debian] Trying to upgrade from R 2.7.1

[Running debian stable]

I followed the instructions at 
http://cran.r-project.org/bin/linux/debian, adding
deb http://cran.R-project.org/bin/linux/debian lenny-cran/
to /etc/apt/sources.list.  But apt-get still leaves me with R 2.7.1.

How can I diagnose what's wrong or correct this?
