Thank you for weighing in to this thread.

That seems like a bug; why would ‘--upgrade’ silently do nothing? I
would think it should either complain that it's useless, or implicitly
turn on ‘--update’ as well (I certainly assume that ‘sbuild-update
--upgrade’ means “do update, then also do upgrade”.)
Should I file a bug report for that?

Aha, I see that my ‘~/.sbuildrc’ has a ‘$external_commands’ which is
invoking ‘adt-run’ with an explicit chroot. So that is the one which
needs to be updated.
That setting has been there since before ‘adt-run’ was deprecated. So
it's long enough that I forgot I'd written it :-)
Sorry for the red herring, everyone.

Is that equivalent to:
$ sudo sbuild-update --update --dist-upgrade --clean --autoclean --autoremove unstable
(I prefer, when recording commands in a script, to use the explicit
options; it makes it easier to understand when coming back months
Yes, after running that command the ‘adt-run’ command now is able to
download the right versions of packages.
Now I need to convert that to an ‘autopkgtest’ command instead :-)
