either your mirror is out of sync or we have an inconsistent repo state,
where someone moved some modules bevore moving the kernel.
in the signoff report from an hour ago linux-4.3-1 is fully signed off,
but not moved yet. you can check the current state of the packages at
the website.
you fear for reboot seems legit - you could either wait for a consistent
state (which is to appear soon) or manually take the respective packages
from [testing] (or via the web interface.
hope this helps.
