yep. update your debian and your scribus, too.

you should probably use debian 6.0 and scribus-ng (which currently is 
1.4svn: the beta version for upcoming 1.4 stable release).
(the old debian may still be ok... the old scribus, not)

in order to get the current scribus packages you might need to add the 
scribus own repositories:
