Thanks for sticking with this!  It was the Architecture that I had wrong.  I 
appreciate your straightening me out on it.  My first Ubuntu repo is populating 
now.  I think I've got the first Ubuntu client machine configured for Spacewalk 
properly; it is registered and showing in Spacewalk.  With fingers (and toes 
and eyes) crossed, I'll try doing a package update in a while, and will 
hopefully report success.

Check that your channels have the right settings for checksum type (SHA256) and 
Architecture (AMD64 Debian). If they don't then you will need to delete and 
recreate them.
