You use jigdo? Try it, it works.
In my experience jigdo does not work for a CD release of a previous
point release because some of the packages referenced by the jigdo
removed from the mirrors i.e. those which have been updated.
Actually jigdo has a mechanism to fallback to a certain server for
it can not download from the given mirror. That is:
apparently this 'try-last' repo does not store historical packages long
for any reason. In that case the unfinished image can still be mounted
and re-used, but this time the snapshot.debian.org mirror could be
given as a mirror
to finally finish the image.
