May I ask that you adjust the mirror name (typically in ftpsync.conf),
so that the trace file at
http://debian.a1.bg/debian/project/trace/debian.a1.bg gets populated?
Our monitoring tools

A couple of other (non-blocking) comments:
o we recommend mirrors not sync directly from service aliases such as
ftp.<CC>.debian.org (only http is guaranteed to be available at
ftp.<CC>.d.o sites). Maybe change your config to sync from
the site currently backing the ftp.<CC>.debian.org service you sync
o The tracefile
suggests that the ftpsync version you are using is very old. Please upgrade.
Using a modern ftpsync ensures updates are done in the correct order
so apt clients don't get confused. In particular, it processes
translations, contents, and more files that have been added to the
archive in recent years in the correct stage. It also should produce
trace files that contain more information that is useful for us and helps
downstream mirrors sync better.
o The nameservers for debian.mobiltel.bg are all in the same /24 network. For
reliability we recommend having nameservers in more than one location.
