I am trying to create pbuilder. When I do sudo create pbuilder, I get following error:

E: Failed getting release file http://security.debian.org/debian-security/dists/sid/Release
E: debootstrap failed

Infact http://security.debian.org/debian-security/dists/sid/Release is not accessible. How can I configure a valid source link?

    There is no security support for Sid, which is why there is no repository there. What did you do before sudo pbuilder --create? – Stephen Kitt Mar 27 '18 at 20:42
  • I have just installed debian stretch 9. I installed pbuilder as i wanted to Debianize a package in pbuilder. I then just initiated 'pbuilder create' to generate /var/cache/pbuilder/base.tgz and it is giving this error now – Mumtaz Ahmad Mar 28 '18 at 5:03
