    Hi @etofran810,
    As an alternative, you could download a debootstrap package manually and then install it with dpkg. This should do the trick:

    wget https://deb.debian.org/debian/pool/main/d/debootstrap/debootstrap_1.0.114_all.deb

    dpkg -i debootstrap_1.0.114_all.deb


  • ok, thank you
