You should be aware that you're using a Tor that was released almost 10
months ago. Perhaps you're not using the right debian repository to keep
up to date?

Could be that your ISP is filtering certain requests it doesn't like.

I would suggest upgrading to Tor It fetches directory
information in a different way, so it probably doesn't do the action
that your ISP is trying to filter.

This is weird to see here. It looks like you succeeded at getting enough
directory information and establishing a circuit. So your Tor ought to
work. Perhaps this is because you had directory information from using
Tor recently when it wasn't filtered?

That sounds like a reasonable guess.

That makes it sound like you've screwed up your proxy settings. If your
ISP blocks Tor, then your Tor requests ought to time out or otherwise
fail. Not work and show up as being your own local IP address.

So in summary, "maybe, but it sounds like you're confused about enough
that I can't really guess."
