I got an instant monster list that I can't get in to a file (>> just does the first two lines) here is some of it:
Code:
Note, selecting 'glade' for glob '*gl*'
Note, selecting 'giggle' for glob '*gl*'
Note, selecting 'librust-encoding-index-singlebyte-1.20141219-dev' for glob '*gl*'
Note, selecting 'libglobus-gass-copy-doc' for glob '*gl*'
Note, selecting 'libxmmsclient-glib-dev' for glob '*gl*'
E: Release 'stable' for 'libglu1' was not found
E: Release 'stable' for 'apertium-gl-en' was not found
E: Release 'stable' for 'apertium-gl-es' was not found
E: Release 'stable' for 'apertium-gl-pt' was not found
E: Release 'stable' for 'autoconf-gl-macros' was not found
E: Release 'stable' for 'bglibs-doc' was not found
So not sure it worked.

When installing packages with apt you can always require a package from specific release (package_name/release) provided the repos for that release are enabled in sources.list.

You also can test with apt -s install ... -s means simulate.

Let's try this (I also edited my post above, that idea with \*gl\* was stupid and dangerous, sorry):
Code:
sudo apt install ^lib{'e?gl.*',x11-xcb1}/buster gstreamer.\*-gl/buster
or you can just start an interactive aptitude session
Code:
sudo aptitude
and resolve conflicts from there. b in aptitude searches for the next broken package.
