A couple more options may help: it's sometimes possible that you've extracted
the USB stick while files were still writing.

sudo dd if=/debian-11.7.0-amd64-netinst.iso of=/dev/sda bs=1M oflag=dsync status=progress

This forces a sync on each write to the usb so you don't lose data and also
gives you a brief status output on the size written.
