I'm closing up this bug report, although you're right. For any architecture
other than amd64 and i386, the Debian repository is unusable. The only packages
available for these architectures are noarch (i.e., binary-independent) packages
and hence the repositories are broken for these architectures.

On the other hand, we do not advertise support for anything other than
amd64/i386 on Debian Jessie and above.

This said, I also have good news: coming up we'll be serving Raspbian (not
Debian) packages for armhf in a separate repository. Currently this repository
is only for Raspbian Jessie and nightly X2Go packages, but I will be adding
release packages later.

Package: x2goserver, mate binding etc. in debian jessie main

In the jessie debian repo, the armhf architecture is incomplete:
there is no x2goserver (and others are missing too) in

I would reckon the packages in jessie/main should be without missing 

However, generally you can compile for the armhf arch, as it is being 
proved by the ubuntu main stable x2go trusty ppa:
