Yep, can reproduce.

Weird, both qemu 7.0.0 and 7.1.0 are long in staging and rebuilt, I fail to force them to stable,
there the conflict would not be there..

Really strange: the files exist in mirror/pool, but there are zero symlinks in
pentium4, i686 or i486, I think, the buildmaster/mirror "forgets" packages..

Now I was able to push some 486 qemu 7.1.0 packages, but not anything from the
other subarchitectures..

Erich Eckner commented on 06.10.2022 10:41

The buildmaster should not forget packages. The sanity check has one check explicitely to check for packages without symlinks, i.e. which are in no repository anymore.

Unistall qemu, install qemu-base..
So this was caused by an old stale version of qemu (a package which no longer exists upstream)
