This is fairly off topic for this list now, but the file you care about
is /etc/apt/sources.list, not particularly the things in the
sources.list.d directory as much (in my experience)

Once aptitude (or apt-get) update has run, you should see the same
things via aptitude search that you normally would.

This is almost always a problem for me when I install with debootstrap,
as the /etc/apt/sources.list that you get isn't nearly as complete/long
as you get with a normal install.
