Thanks very much for your reply, John.

Here is what you asked for :-

% cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ jessie main non-free contrib
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ jessie main non-free contrib

deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free

# jessie-updates, previously known as 'volatile' #deb
http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ jessie-updates main contrib non-free
#deb-src http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ jessie-updates main contrib
non-free #deb http://packages.linuxmint.com debian import

# Jessie backports #deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian
jessie-backports
main contrib non-free

For good measure I have added :-

% apt-cache policy network-manager
 network-manager:
   Installed: (none)
   Candidate: 0.9.10.0-7
   Version table:
      0.9.10.0-7 0
         500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ jessie/main amd64 Packages
