debmirror doesn't work with Canonical ESM

Bug #1826448 reported by Danielle Zephyr Malament
This bug affects 3 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
debmirror (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

debmirror tries to put Canonical Ubuntu Extended Support repos in the wrong dist (e.g. 'trusty' instead of 'trusty-security', which breaks the paths it looks for on the remote server. This is because there is a check for origin='Ubuntu' but not origin='UbuntuESM'. This diff fixes it:

} elsif ($origin eq "Ubuntu" or $origin eq "Canonical") {


} elsif ($origin eq "Ubuntu" or $origin eq "UbuntuESM" or $origin eq "Canonical") {

I was able to reproduce with the latest versions on both Trusty and Bionic.

This impacts debmirror in Debian stretch & buster as well. IMO, this should be fixed by Canoncial in the ESM repositories vs. trying to update debmirror for this new naming convention they've introduced.

Is there any workaround for this? I'm running into this while trying to mirror the fips-updates repo on ubuntu 20.04.

Of note, the fips updates have an origin of `UbuntuFIPSUpdates` probably that check should be if the origin _starts_ with `Ubuntu` not if it is exactly equal to ubuntu
