no you have to specify.

Following debian's hierarchy, arch is a subset of the superset that
comprises a release version (ie: 17.04 zesty has both x86/amd64

I have local mirrors here for both debian and ubuntu due to docker image CI
internally, which I specifically only mirror amd64 releases for both.

I feel like I just became mrObvious here in the list, so if you can
elaborate further for your use case perhaps we can help narrow down your
issue. :)
