Given recent deboostrap (e.g. from Debian bookwork) you should be able
to use all of them from Debian:

For bullseye, buster (all Debian based):

DIST=buster git-pbuilder create
DIST=bullseye git-pbuilder create

For bionic, focal, ... (ubuntu based):

sudo apt install ubuntu-archive-keyring
DIST=bionic git-pbuilder create --mirror=http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu --components="main universe"
DIST=focal git-pbuilder create --mirror=http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu --components="main universe"

then e.g.:

gbp buildpackage --git-dist=bionic
