Bug Description

As all old distribution releases, yakkety was moved to http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu
and all other old distribution versions works OK except yakkety.

Simple test fails:

debootstrap --arch=amd64 --variant=minbase --no-check-gpg yakkety out/ubuntu-16.10-x64-mini http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu

And we see a lot of missing packages:

I: Validating mawk 1.3.3-17ubuntu2
I: Retrieving mount 2.28.2-1ubuntu1
W: Couldn't download package mount (ver 2.28.2-1ubuntu1 arch amd64)
I: Retrieving multiarch-support 2.24-3ubuntu1
I: Validating multiarch-support 2.24-3ubuntu1
I: Retrieving tar 1.29b-1
I: Validating tar 1.29b-1
I: Retrieving tzdata 2016g-1
W: Couldn't download package tzdata (ver 2016g-1 arch all)
I: Retrieving ubuntu-keyring 2016.09.19
W: Couldn't download package ubuntu-keyring (ver 2016.09.19 arch all)
I: Retrieving util-linux 2.28.2-1ubuntu1
W: Couldn't download package util-linux (ver 2.28.2-1ubuntu1 arch amd64)
I: Retrieving zlib1g 1:1.2.8.dfsg-2ubuntu5
W: Couldn't download package zlib1g (ver 1:1.2.8.dfsg-2ubuntu5 arch amd64)
E: Couldn't download packages: bsdutils libblkid1 libfdisk1 liblzma5 libmount1 libsmartcols1 libuuid1 mount tzdata ubuntu-keyring util-linux zlib1g

This is not expected.

Yes I know that yakkety is unsported, but all other unsuported distribution versions works flawless from old-realeases.ubuntu.com .

We using this as old image version for internal testing.

This is a known issue, the removal of yakkety from archive.ubuntu.com was done somewhat overzealously early, leading to us needing to recover the bits from elsewhere, but it's in progress.
