But does it help ?

Steve talks of not finding the packages, whereas i talk of not finding
the .jigdo files (*). Please clarify which files exactly are reported by
jigdo-lite as non-existing.

Is your jigdo-lite old enough at all to suffer from the https blindness ?
  https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=865864
was closed in december 2017 by release of program version 0.7.3-5.

(*)
.template is mainly a compressed ISO image with holes where packages
were stored in the original ISO image.
.jigdo is mainly a compressed list of pool paths of Debian packages.
The packages sit in the pool trees of one or more Debian mirror servers.

jigdo-lite downloads .jigdo and .template and then fills the holes of
the template by downloading the packages from the mirrors.
The https blindness bug 865864 affected only the .jigdo/.template download.


Have a nice day :)
