Right, OK. In that case, it's probably down to how you are trying to
access the rootfs. dpkg --configure -a is normally best run *before*
booting the rootfs, whether you connect to it over NFS or anything else,
some (many) packages need to be configured before the binaries will run
correctly. These cannot be configured on a different architecture
because the process involves executing lots of binaries of the wrong

Wrong version of multistrap. Pull in the one from Debian experimental.
It's not good to rely on noauth unless you have direct access to the

That's Debian. See http://www.emdebian.org/multistrap/examples.php
The source specifies where the packages are downloaded, that's debian.net.

supported but new configuration files should be "bootstrap" instead."

Mount the system without booting it in such a way that you can chroot
into it and execute the binaries on a device of the same architecture.
