Summary0008158: Live-Builds Fail in Debian Environments
DescriptionI followed the directions from to configure an Ubuntu Server instance to be able to produce the Kali ISO. It worked for a while, but has been failing since sometime in November. I tried building the same project from Kali and it works without issue. I have been needing to open this ticket for a while and been putting it off, so sorry if all the required information is not present; I can provide additional details as needed.

The end of the build.log file when the build fails on the Ubuntu system contains the following:
