Hi Ilari,

It may be that you are unlucky. Buster is now in Long Term Support (LTS) as
the oldstable distribution. The decision has been taken to close
buster-backports as any updates should be going only through buster-security.

My respectful suggestion to you would be to move to Debian 11 (bullseye) which
was initially released in August 2021 and should be supported for a year
past the release of Debian 12. If updating, please take account of the
Bullseye release notes and, in particular, changes to /etc/apt/sources.list 

See: https://www.debian.org/releases/bullseye/amd64/index.en.html

It is anticipated that Debian 12 (Bookworm) will be released later this year.
