Apologies Julian, I completely forgot to include details of my (Jammy /
22.04) build host which would have avoided the confusion. Adding it to
the report now (although I know it is sort of too late at this point).

** Description changed:

  The last couple of days, I have been unable to run a successful
  debootstrap for Noble Numbat.
  Apparently this is caused by the addition of symlinks (/bin, /lib,
  /lib64 and /sbin) in base-files 13ubuntu7. According to debootstrap.log,
  it fails to extract said symlinks because they already exist at that
- This can be reproduced against any up-to-date Ubuntu public archive
- mirror as of today.

  Attached shell output of two runs of debootstrap. First run uses mirror
  archive.ubuntu.com (which as of this report serves base-files version
  13ubuntu7), and second run uses a local custom mirror (which serves
  base-files 13ubuntu6). First run fails, second run succeeds.
