this is a problem of the mirror which is used when you access
cdn.debian.net from your build host, nothing we can do about it here.
there are two possible workarounds:
a) (prefered) overload cdn.debian.net in your dns server (e.g. on
your router) and point it to a known good debian mirror close to
you. e.g. at home, i do overload it with ftp.ch.debian.org.
b) don't use cdn.debian.net for binary indices (= the indices that are
ending up in the image, eventually) with --mirror-binary.
according to your mail domain, you're probably from germany, so using
ftp.de.debian.org is reliable, but not necessarily the fastest mirror.
