what kind of d-i would you actually expect to live in trusty-backports
d-i gets official releases, having anything in backports wouldnt make
much sense since trusty-updates gets regular rebuilds ... try to tweak
your config to not look for d-i in any backports repos.

i would just make it like:

instead of blindly pulling in @dists with all repos (note that security
fixes for d-i also end up in -updates)
