So my understanding is that '-t debian' parameter doesn't use the proper 
information like the DIST (it does mention jessie) 
$ sudo lxc-create -n debian03 -t debian          
debootstrap is /usr/sbin/debootstrap
Checking cache download in /var/cache/lxc/debian/rootfs-jessie-ppc64le ... 
gpg: key 2B90D010: "Debian Archive Automatic Signing Key (8/jessie) 
<>" not changed

... even though manually, it works also on jessie
 $ sudo lxc-create -n debian03 -t download
