Fails to install core packages for Lucid

debootstrap (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: debootstrap

I'm writing a few scripts to automate the processes described on this page:

When I run debootstrap and specify karmic, the chroot installs fine. But when I specify lucid, it fails with the error:

W: Failure trying to run: chroot /home/myuser/live_cd_images/server/work/chroot dpkg --force-depends --install /var/cache/apt/archives/libc6_2.11.1-0ubuntu7_i386.deb

Is something wrong with the repository?

I'll attach my and a script log.

I've run into this same issue. debootstrap works fine to install Maverick or Natty, but it fails on Lucid with the chroot error.
