Upgrade to Buster problems

As posted earlier, the upgrade broke gnome-maps for which I submitted a bug report. More problems have surfaced. Had to reconfigure CUPS as it lost my network printer. That was easy. Found that xjig is broken and submitted a bug report for that. The error messages imply missing perl packages but reinstalling xjig did not help. Just found that swell-foop would not respond to mouse clicks and could only be played with the arrow keys and enter key. Solved that by disabling Wayland and reverting to Xorg and then reinstalling the swell-foop package. With Wayland disabled, xjig and gnome-maps still won't work. I'm wondering if this a problem created by updating from Stretch rather than clean install.

I think a little more information may help. Did you follow the upgrade instructions in the release notes? Eg removing old/obsolete and/or third party packages? Did the upgrade really complete all the way through to the end? What do you mean by gnome-maps "won't work"? What happens? Seg fault? Error messages?

Hi Evo2,
Thanks for the reply. I believe the upgrade completed. I removed a few obsolete and third party packages but not all. When starting gnome-maps from the icon, the screen just says it can't locate an active Internet. When starting the gnome maps from the command line I get the following error:

"(org.gnome.Maps:8160): Gjs-WARNING **: 10:59:13.846: Some code called array.toString() on a Uint8Array instance. Previously this would have interpreted the bytes of the array as a string, but that is nonstandard. In the future this will return the bytes as comma-separated digits. For the time being, the old behavior has been preserved, but please fix your code anyway to explicitly call ByteArray.toString(array).
(Note that array.toString() may have been called implicitly.)
0 load() ["resource:///org/gnome/Maps/js/placeStore.js":168]
1 _initPlaceStore() ["resource:///org/gnome/Maps/js/application.js":186]
2 vfunc_startup() ["resource:///org/gnome/Maps/js/application.js":233]
3 main() ["resource:///org/gnome/Maps/js/main.js":57]
4 run() ["resource:///org/gnome/gjs/modules/package.js":225]
5 start() ["resource:///org/gnome/gjs/modules/package.js":209]
6 <TOP LEVEL> ["/usr/bin/gnome-maps":2]

Not sure what the Internet problem is but it might be related to an inactive eth0 whereas the active Internet is eth2, a USB adapter. Other packages have no problem finding and using eth2. The eth0, eth2 condition has existed for 2 years and the various versions of Debian 9 without any problem on any application.
