Thanks very much! This makes the issue a lot clearer.

As we've seen no other reports of this issue, I feel that it may be amd64
specific. It would be great if an amd64 porter could try to reproduce/debug this.

Note: a new debootstrap has just entered unstable, so the issue may fix
itself. This error is with 20051024 netinst image that has debootstrap
Note: there were two NMUs to fix problems; those may have been broken.
Note: a problem with the new debootstrap was discovered today; a new
base-installer has been uploaded to fix this.

An analysis of the problem follows.

The problem is fairly in the beginning where a list of "required" packages
to be installed is built.

+ get_debs Priority: required
+ local m1=file:///cdrom
+ local c=main
+ local path=dists/etch/main/binary-amd64/Packages
+ apt_dest pkg etch main amd64 file:///cdrom dists/etch/main/binary-amd64/Packages
+ local m=file:///cdrom
+ m=debootstrap.invalid
+ printf %s var/lib/apt/lists/
+ echo debootstrap.invalid_dists/etch/main/binary-amd64/Packages
+ sed s/\//_/g

Several required packages, including mount, are missing from this list for
some reason. This means that the /usr/lib/debootstrap/pkgdetails command
is failing somehow.
The problem may be in the script, but it may also be in the CD.

Hmmm. Looks like the problem is in the CD image:
find /cdrom/pool/main/ -name mount*

The package mount is completely missing... Reassigning to debian-cd.
