Does a good security-officer have to know everything about every hole? I
myself don't think so, but where do people start?

security officer is more of a complience officer, he makes sure that all the users, admin and  other it staff stick to 
the policies created.

If I see lists and forums about network-security it seems that everybody
knows a lot and has a huge reference base. Is this true?

this is a mirage, people can make statements based on they find something they find in google and can appear all 
knowing ( this is a good method for finding info but it can be abused ), like they say little knowledge is a dangerous 
thing.... google is a dangerous thing. usless used properly  
I want to learn more about security stuff, but I can't find the real
basics to build upon anywhere. When there are posts on lists they
presume that everybody has a certain knowledge level and are aware of
best practices. But is this true?

to start the basics some of the more experienced members of this list will point you out just the right sources but 
take all the advice with a grain of salt.

Just because there are discussions, it seems that there is not one
overall and central way of keeping track of evolving issues. How do
people keep track easily with up to date best practices and not get
distracted by "old" advisory?

discussion is a good way to keep currunt and adapt your existing infrastructure for the latest threats
