If you look at the directory, ten other contents files for other
architectures are there, so this looks like a plain bug. You can report it
at ftpmaster@d.o.

That mirroring tool apparently doesn't know the structure of the directory
tree of debian-non-US archives. There's a "non-US/" path component missing.

Either way, debian-non-US has been de facto comatose for a while and there
isn't much interest in reviving it (and understandably so). If you just
skipped mirroring it and left it as is, nobody would notice...

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
