This image is broken. Maybe I should have removed it.

You have used the first image I made, which was broken.

I advice and *recommend* you to test now with the daily built D-I image
(ppp is now already in Sid, but you will need to append the
"modules-ppp-uded" to your boot command[1]) or, if you prefer, the
second image I created[2] (which doesn't need any boot paramters).

I recommend you to use the official daily image and boot with either
"installgui modules=ppp-udeb" or "install modules=ppp-udeb":
