these things come to mind:

  - perhaps you have automatic upgrades set up on

  there should be some record in /var/log/apt or
/var/log/dpkg.log of what is being updated.

  - if you have a fast enough connection it doesn't
hurt to make sure /var/lib/apt/lists files are 
consistent (i have erased them and redownloaded 
at times to get through strange apt-get issues).

  - if you have been messing with apt preferences you
may have messed that up.  dunno what you've been up

  - there aren't any updates to apply at this time.
