Re: buster-backports: iptables broken dependency

Yes, I confirm: this is a problem.

A quick and dirty fix is to download and install netbase package form bullseye distribution and then reinstall iptables. Seems to work for me but is not a real solution of course.

On 25 August a new release of iptables was pushed to buster-backports which depends on netbase >= 6.0 - however netbase is not available in backports, and the version in buster is currently 5.6:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  iptables : Depends: netbase (>= 6.0) but 5.6 is to be installed

This results in an impossible situation when installing iptables from backports, and as a knock on effect via a common dependency (libxtables12) also breaks nftables amongst other things.

Any chance this can be fixed, by correcting backported iptables to depend on netbase 5.6?
