I did not manage to pinpoint any discrepancies. It did reinstall some
packages after removing the backports repos, but they were largely irrelevant,
like, apache/php.
There's some upstream backports pulled through Samba4 (namely LSB subsystem),
but the same packages are pulled on prototype system, and it works just fine.
Can we coordinate a session sometime after 18:00Z and look into it in a more
interactive manner? I'm largely omnipresent in LXC IRC.

With best regards,
