Comments/Problems: Looking at tty4 I see that the key pulled did not match signature. Errors are every ten lines or so indicating libgcc1 was not found and it was needed to check the public key. debbootstrap failed on generic description and the rest should be pretty easy as we cant pass go until the public key resolved. Also see mentions that apt-setup-udeb failed.
When downloading installer components I elected every single one. Not sure if that is bad practice or not.
<Description of the install, in prose, and any thoughts, comments
and ideas you had during the initial install.> If libgcc1 and apt-setup-udeb were accessible during the installer routines I feel that this may have gone smoother.
