More importantly Jessie has reached end-of-life[1].  Please do not
expect related suites (such as -security, -backports, -proposed-
updates, -updates) to continue working after this.

(Related to that: arm64 is gone from jessie-security; arm64 wasn't
removed from -backports as there is no LTS for backports and jessie-
backports will eventually be archived as is.)
