Yes, I'm running an up-to-date testing. The version of the system
building the boot-floppies has no influence on the problem, because
the apt-process showing the error uses his own
boot-floppies/sources.list. Additionally, the problem only happens if
you start with an empty download-directory, because rootdisk.sh only
tells apt to download the packages not yet downloaded. This also means
that I could fix the problem by downloading the packages manually, but
where is the point having the download-stuff if it does not work
without manual interaction?
