It's fine to use apt-cache-ng or approx, if things are running
file. But in your case with a lot of errors, please disable any proxy
or cache and us some official (maybe slower) Debian mirror.

I guess DNS for your the install clients is broken heavily.

Please put your fai.log onto, so we can see more
