There was [1] which is apparently fixed.

As Paul mentioned, the -minimal builds take a different approach and
build the image from debootstrap, rather than modifying the upstream
image.  They are generally well tested just as a side-effect of infra
relying on them daily.  You can use DIB_DISTRIBUTION_MIRROR to set
that to a local mirror and eliminate another source of instability
(however, that leaves the mirror in the final image ... a known issue.
Contributions welcome :)
