yes, netboot images are broken everytime the linux ABI is bumped in
testing. And yes, there were no release for a while, you may want to
try again in a few weeks when Stretch Alpha 9 gets released. Otherwise,
you could just use snapshot.debian.org to get a copy of what was
available at the time the image you're trying to use was published.
