Are you using debootstrap or cdebootstrap? The second is default, but
the first is, at least in my experience, more reliable.
I'm using debootstrap as far as I know.
Also, can you reproduce the error if you use debootstrap outside
pbuilder? If you can, I suggest you check the log in the subdirectory
debootstrap of target directory.
The command I use is
pbuilder create --debootstrapopts --variant=buildd --basetgz base.tgz
I do not know how it translats in term of debootstrap.
The most likely causes are:
- temporary broken dependencies in unstable: wait until they get resolved
That's probably not the issue: 'broken' packages would take turns way
- unreliable mirror: try using a different one
I: Checking component main on http://ftp.jp.debian.org/debian...
How do you change the mirror you're using?
- unreliable network connection
This is most probably the issue. However, is there any way to make use
debootstrap reliable on unreliable connections? Like increasing
timeouts, retrying, etc...?
This information would be extremely useful.
