No only the build daemon needs to be restarted. It just mean running
apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade in the chroot, and then rm

The local admin have been contacted, they are very reactive and they

Now we are waiting for the admin of the ARM build daemons to restart them.

I don't know if that exists, but I am sure a few people know the name of
the local admin of this machine (smackdown). At least the admin of the
ARM build daemons.
