It's just scsi-modules that's not available on armel apparently.

As far as I know, armel is in “maintenance mode” anyway, trying not to
lose support for old devices. I wouldn't worry if an optional component
like open-iscsi(-udeb) would not be installable on this single
architecture. I'll let folks from debian-arm@ comment further on this.

But of course, this is a problem that prevents migration now, let's
check why; the old Architecture list looked like this (before switching
it to linux-any):

    Architecture: amd64 arm64 armhf i386 ia64 mips mipsel powerpc ppc64 ppc64el s390x

without armel so you had no installability issue there… Note that this
was actually explained in the comment just before that line:

    # Note: the (virtual) udeb package scsi-modules (provided by different
    #       linux kernel udebs) must exist for these architectures - so
    #       check that before adding them to this list; the other
    #       scsi-(core|common|...)-modules are NOT sufficient!

An obvious fix would be to revert to an hardcoded list of supported
architectures (and requesting a removal of the obsolete armel binary
that should start appearing in the cruft report[1] once that has
happened); that's not too nice but I don't see any obvious better fix
right now.
