Mender convert failing

Hi! I’m quite new to mender and I’ve been tasked with getting an IoT-gate-imx8 up and running with mender integration by any means.

After looking through the documentation it appears that the mender-convert utility is the way to go, and I have attempted to “menderify” an official debian image from compulab (debian bullseye arm64)

Upon running the mender-convert utility using the optional docker way like so: MENDER_ARTIFACT_NAME=release-1 ./docker-mender-convert \ --disk-image input/image/ \ --config configs/mender_convert_demo_config \ --overlay rootfs_overlay_demo

It eventually fails with the following error:

[FATAL] [mender-convert-modify] Couldn't find package mender-auth in

Any way to solve this? Or is this an issue on mender’s debian package repo?
