No, this just says it couldn't be downloaded. Probalby you have an
inconsistent archive that you hit or something. Why would it be using
such an old version of libnewt?

You're getting youself confused. Validating message come from
debootstrap. Ensuring a given version has a different error message,
and it's done by us, not debootstrap, after the debootstrap stuff is
As I said, you probably just suffer from a desync in the archive
you're using between the Packages file and what's actually there.
