Hm, for some reason I remember this error message, but I don't now
when it occured and also forgot the reason/solution.  All the tests I
did are on a more or less freshly installed squeeze.

Perhaps just retry again and check each step and remove and rebuild
the mirror.  My test installations (also the one on real hardware) was
to the letter following the description (preparing the CD) in the Wiki
(copy/pasting the commands in exactly the order as described). 

Good luck,
