Which version is installed and which version from which repository can be installed can you check with:
  apt-cache policy drbd8-source

Install with
  apt-get install drbd8-source
You will get the newest version, supposable from backports.org.

Updates are offered for the installed packages only (of course).
Your apt sources list is OK.

With best regards.
