Debian Questions on apt-get

I have worked with Centos quite a bit in past though no expert.
Giving Debian a whirl now.
Installed Debian on a 1U box. Used a 1TB drive and EXT4. Linux
root@debian:~# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 916G 661M 868G 1% /
tmpfs 497M 0 497M 0% /lib/init/rw
udev 493M 112K 493M 1% /dev
tmpfs 497M 0 497M 0% /dev/shm
Unchecked all options when installing since I wanted only essentials
since this will be a rack mount server. After I installed I found ssh
was not installed.
In Centos when I want to update or add a package I do this:
yum install package_name
To find a package I also frequently do something like this:
yum list available |grep abr_package_name
To get ssh going I finally did this from console:
apt-get install openssh-server
It demanded I plug the USB CD-ROM back in. Now I have SSH running and
can eliminate the keyboard and monitor.
After getting ssh installed I edited /etc/apt/sources.list and
commented out the CD to get it to quit asking for the USB drive which
will not remain on the system.
Now on Centos when I do 'yum update' after a fresh install I usually
get offered a good number of patches etc. When I do 'apt-get update'
I seem to get nothing.
So are there really no patches available or am I doing something
wrong? How do I get it too download and install new packages with
apt-get or whatever rather then using the CD?
Is there a FAQ or something out there for users coming from CentOS to Debian?
