package_install problem

I’m stuck with package_install.  This was working at some point but stopped, no doubt I changed something somewhere, but I can’t find it.

The client boots ok and goes though the disk portioning.  However when it starts the package_install phase no packages are found.

When the install stops (with an error) I can control C and install any package I like from the command line.  However when I chroot /target apt-get can’t find any packages at all.  The hosts files, routing, and sources.list files are identical between / and /target.  Doing I apt-get update works on / but not on /target.  I have an deb mirror running on the faiserver and apt-get correctly pulls packages from there when using /.

I’ve looked though the apt documents but can’t find a clue there either.
