Unable to connect to packages.debian.org: HTTP Error 404: Not Found
E: Did not retrieve any changelog entries. Do you need to specify '-C'? Was the package recently uploaded? (check http://packages.debian.org/changelogs/)

Not sure if documentation of the -C option is missing or if the option
doesn't exist and requestsync shouldn't discuss it.
