Sounds like Debian's package of 2.0.11 is bugged.

So I just checked bugs.debian.org and found it as bug #143271,
complete with a workaround proposed by Nils Rennebarth:

This workaround appears to have my private archives working again.

The freedoms that we enjoy presently are the most important victories of the
White Hats over the past several millennia, and it is vitally important that
we don't give them up now, only because we are frightened.
