multistrap fails when aptsources not specified

multistrap fails when aptsources is not specified within multistrap.conf:

    # multistrap -f multistrap-occmp.conf 
    >> multistrap 2.1.7 using multistrap-occmp.conf
    >> multistrap: No sources defined for a foreign multistrap.

As the embedded system i'm thinking of will not be allowed to be updated by apt 
i think it should be valid not to specify any update repositories, isn't it?
Or do i have a wrong understanding of aptsources?
