I am building flexbuilder_lsdk on Ubuntu 18.04 with:

flex-builder -i clean

flex-builder -i clean-rfs

flex-builder -i repo-update

flex-builder -m ls1046ardb -a arm64

and the build fails with the message:


installing for second-stage ...
I: Keyring file not available at /usr/share/keyrings/ubuntu-archive-keyring.gpg; switching to https mirror
I: Installing core packages...
W: Failure trying to run:  dpkg --force-depends --install /var/cache/apt/archives/base-passwd_3.5.44_arm64.deb
W: See //debootstrap/debootstrap.log for details (possibly the package /var/cache/apt/archives/base-passwd_3.5.44_arm64.deb is at fault)


Here is the output of the debootstrap.log
