debootstrap is used to create a Debian base system from scratch,
without requiring the availability of dpkg or apt. It does this
by downloading .deb files from a mirror site, and carefully
unpacking them into a directory which can eventually be chrooted

- Update version to 1.0.97 (changes since 1.0.90):
* Avoid the "type" shell command (deb#860545).
* Add (Ubuntu) bionic as a symlink to gutsy.
* scripts/gutsy: Incorporate changes from Ubuntu:
+ Synch from scripts/sid.
+ Fix debootstrap --variant=fakechroot failure because
initscripts is no longer part of the base system.
* Use force_md5 for breezy, dapper and edgy (deb#659360,
deb#676373). Now you can create Ubuntu breezy/dapper/edgy chroot.
* Change repository URI for old Ubuntu releases (deb#676370,
Archived Ubuntu releases are at
* Set correct keyring and default mirror for old debian releases.
Now you can fetch popato/woody/sarge/etch/lenny/squeeze if you
want (deb#891404, deb#600647, deb#792729).
* Avoid pre-exist directory causes failure (deb#864734).
* Split common code from scripts/sid to scripts/debian-common and
share it between distributions (deb#798562).
* Don't let host PATH leak into the target commands. It works on
chroots that have different PATH like Arch Linux and Fedora
(deb#718632, deb#770658, deb#890418).
* Escape spaces to fix debootstrap on path contains space fails
(deb#586158, deb#762431).
* Add warning if file specified via --keyring does not exist
(deb#754318, deb#775474).
* Avoid unnecessary keyring warning with --second-stage option
* Output warning if falling back to sha1 (deb#775444).
* Prevent unintended removal with --print-debs option
* Add scripts for Kali Linux (deb#798564).
* Improve manpage description for --{unpack,make}-tarball options
* Fix multiple components usage for --foreign/--second-stage
* Try to auto-detect proxy if available
(e.g. squid-deb-proxy-client) (deb#732628).
* Handle existing /dev (deb#872577).
* Create /dev/console as same as previous (deb#872059).
* Do not ignore HTTPS mirror setting (deb#893954).
* Improve manpage "what is calls a Debian base system" (deb#872948).
* Improve the error message when download fails (deb#866401).
* Use wget --non-verbose option instead of --quiet.
* Improve error message on Release signed by unknown key
* Add a --cache-dir feature (deb#844118)
It is enabled by default and uses /var/cache/apt/archives as a
default value.
* Use arch-test if installed to check whether second stage is
possible (deb#826709).
* Fix boostrapping libvirt LXC containers (deb#890419).
* Use "command -v apt-config" to check for apt-config's presence
* Drop default value for the --cache-dir parameter.
* Forbid the usage of non-empty directories with --print-debs and
- -make-tarball.
* Do not use HTTPS for the Kali bootstrap script.
