This is an intended feature of the Packages plugin. (explicit delegation to the underlying packaging system of package version choice)

This is the same as the problem that would happen if you needed to rebuild a machine when the old version of the package was gone from an upstream package source.

For this reason, we recommend the use of local mirrors of package sources (for yum or apt, or whatever) so that these variables are all kept under local control.
