Debian is supposed to be the pillar, the foundation of Linux. It should 
not have installation bugs. I can understand advanced bugs that could 
not have been noticed before, but not simple ones. From what I have 
heard about Debian, a contributor is not accepted officially till 
atleast 5 or more years, in order to ensure that what is contributed is 
of the highest quality level. Debian does not release its distros as 
often as Ubuntu, in order to ensure more stability. A Debian distro 
should work out of the box without any setup issues.
