mmdebstrap does not take debian-installer organized data as input.

According to the man page:
In contrast to debootstrap it uses apt to resolve dependencies
and is thus able to use more than one mirror and resolve more
complex dependencies.
AND later
Pass arbitrary options to apt.
As apt has no problem with ISOs. Why then should mmdebstrap have problem?

Also note the error message.
E: apt-get update -oAPT::Status-Fd=<$fd> -oDpkg::Use-Pty=false failed

It explicitly states "apt-get" has error.
Therefore I need the right mmdebstrap syntax.
