This happens when you install base-system a second time without
reformatting the partition. Known, somewhat infamous bug.

This error message is a consequence of an error that happened before. Most
probably like so:
libgnutls7 depends on libopencdk8; however:
Package libopencdk8 is not installed.
Errors were encountered while processing:
/usr/sbin/debootstrap: 1: sleep: not found

cp /target/bin/sleep /bin
cp /target/lib/librt* /lib
This has fixed it for me, however, the sleep is usually not the problem.
Please retry with erased / partition. The error mentioned above would show
on console 3 or 4 (Alt-F3 or Alt-F4) or in /target/var/log/debootstrap.* if
I remember correctly.
Please specify the exact image and download location, so we can check this
