I am running a raspberry Pi 2B (with GUI disabled) and I added deb http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ buster main contrib non-free rpi to my sources.list.

After this, I ran sudo apt-get update and everything seems to work.

But when I executed sudo apt-get upgrade, a few packages could not be installed.

sudo dpkg --configure -a did not help(same errors), and because of that, I decided to comment my source out again.

That didn't help, I got the same errors:

Reading package lists...
Building dependency tree...
Reading state information...
The following packages have been kept back:
  opensc opensc-pkcs11
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 2 not upgraded.
43 not fully installed or removed.
After this operation, 0 B of additional disk space will be used.

I've tried the commands from this post but it did not help.

  • It sounds like either you thought you could use buster sources without upgrading, or you thought you were upgrading (but did not follow the right sequence of commands). That is unfortunate...

  • @goldilocks How can I fix this?

    I don't know if you can, and -- eek -- I just noticed the base system was jessie (v8), not stretch (v9), meaning you tried to skip straight to v10. This was a very bad idea. You might want to clarify in the question what you thought you would accomplish by doing this; if there is a fix that information might be relevant.

    You could try apt-get -s install $(apt-history rollback | tr '\n' ' '). Then remove the buster sources from your apt-sources and do a sudo apt-get update again and if your are irish or have the luck of the irish it might work. If you managed the rollback I would suggest to use sdkman to install java. I dont know if this works on a raspbian but this link uses sdkman to install grails on as raspi (grails needs groovy and groovy needs java): recursive.codes/blog/post/7 Oct 19, 2019 at 15:42

    What PeterPaulKiefer suggested I would only do on a cloned SD Card so you do not risk to completely destroy your installation.
