The latter site is part of the main archive and does not have
information about package versions that are only in the security

Packages uploaded to the security archive are normally copied to the
(old)stable-proposed-update suite of the main archive, so long as that
is open, i.e. until the last point release.  So it looks as if the copy
to the main archive failed for some reason.

Because the package didn't get copied to the main archive.

The common reason why this may fail is that a maintainer uploads a
different orig tarball to the security archive.  However, the two
versions agree on the checksums of the orig tarball.  I would take this
up with the FTP team.
