I just resolved a similar issue.

Not sure if it translates to Debian, but do you have a “kernel-modules” type package that can be installed?

No, I don’t have one. I don’t even know why.

It sounds like maybe your vm doesn’t support squashfs.

Does the result of cat /proc/filesystems | grep sq yield squashfs when run in a terminal?
