Another option I went with (assuming Archlinux):


In short:

pacman -S debootstrap debian-archive-keyring
cd /var/lib/machines
mkdir debian_build
(if you're on btrfs, instead do 'btrfs sub create debian_build')
debootstrap stable ./debian_build https://deb.debian.org/debian/
systemd-nspawn -D ./debian_build
systemd-nspawn -bD ./debian_build
-> adjust /etc/apt/sources.list

I had the same problem a few weeks ago when compiling coreboot for the
first time (now it worked!) :)
