Random thoughts shooting out of volatile mind
Note to Self: Telling apt to download specific architecture information only

If you have enabled multi-arch enabled in your system and one of the third party repository you use in /etc/apt/sources.list is not providing the foreign arch you have selected then fear not just do the below for that particular repository line. deb [arch=arch1] uri distribution component

In my case mozilla.debian.net doesn't provide binary-armel hence I just did this deb [arch=amd64] http://localhost:9999/mdn experimental iceweasel-aurora

and apt stopped complaining about missing foreign arch. Well this is present in man page of sources.list but I just wrote here so I can find it easily next time :-).
