Some warnings will ever by there in every install.

Then, FAI uses quite simple, but not always very accurate heuristics to
declare the system installed without errors.

If the  warnings you still get do not affect the usability of your
system - if your system is already in the sate you want it to have even
with these warnings , you can add these warnings to the ignore lists.

Follow the hint from Michael to fix it then.

This usually happens if on your FAI server, you have configured the uni
köln repository, but not for your nfsroot. (etc/apt/... vs. /etc/fai/apt)
