Do not specify „--print-debs” if you want „debootstrap” to install the
packages.

*BINGO!!!!*
Proofreading one's own work is intrinsically error prone ;/

But it doesn't solve all my problems. Captured the session with
SCRIPT(1). I haven't yet decoded the permission bits displayed by
the "ls -Rdl ..." lines. I don't see the two error messages being
consistent with what I *think* I see when using Caja.
Yepp, I have some homework to do. ;}

The error says the filesystem containing /media/root/rco1 is mounted
with noexec or nodev.  Is that in fact the case?

I don't know.

 Look at the /proc/mounts entry for that mountpoint.

I used Caja (MATE's file manager) to look at /proc/mounts without finding anything resembling the needed information. I'm missing some understanding.


The operation debootstrap is attempting appears to be the equivalent of

   mknod /media/root/rco1/test-dev-null c 1 3

You can try it out to verify after you fix the mount options to not
include nodev.


I started with the man page for "mknod" and followed links 2 or 3 levels discovering how little I know ;/ It's 1 AM my time to quit for "day". Much reading to do.

Thanks.
