This is odd, because many other torrent trackers and hundreds of torrents work just fine. I don't know how to check if it is working. A plain simple 'wget' request gives:

    --2021-12-21 23:32:43-- http://bttracker.debian.org:6969/announce

And if I send same request to another tracker I get.. well at least something:
    $ wget -O- http://tracker.humblebundle.com:2710/announce

I get the first behaviour with wget. You could something that doesn't actually exist, like /stats or something that does, like /stats?

Could it be that Debian torrent tracker blocks out requests from Tor network?

Not as far as I know. But I guess if that particular exit node had been particularly nasty in the past, there might be filters upstream from it.
