debootstrap fails with file url

debootstrap (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


I am using kubuntu 14.04 64Bit machine. When trying to create a Basic
ubuntu-server chroot via:
mkdir debootstrap
mkdir /media/iso
mount -o loop ubuntu-14.04.1-server-amd64.iso /media/iso
debootstrap --arch=amd64 trusty debootstrap file:/media/iso

The process Fails with:
W: Failure trying to run: chroot debootstrap mount -t proc proc /proc

The reason is, that most of the required base Tools and Directory structure is
contained in /media/iso/install/filesystem.squashfs instead of any installable
deb packages.

How is it supposed to work in 14.04? It worked fine with 12.04.

best regards
