In my case this was because I tried to mount from the same machine to the same machine and I discovered you can't do that.  Leaving the DEBIANMIRROR entry blank will allow the setup to continue if you're not using nfs for the mirror and if you are attempting to use it, can I suggest vsftpd server and a mount --bind command to bind the mirror to the ftp server directory to test the working of the rest of the setup.

You can mount faiserver:/files/whatever /newlocation on the same
machine by using NFS. I'm doing this since many years. I think there's
a portmapper or nfsserver problem.
