I learned yesterday that people that use APT pinning or
APT::Default-Release may be missing out -updates if they pin to buster
only. See the latest entry to the release notes [1, last paragraph] to
cover the issue for bullseye-security. I'm obviously not sure if that
happened here, but if the issue is the same on ci.d.n infrastructure, it
would explain the failure there (the logs from yesterday there mention
"Setting up shim-signed:arm64 (1.36~1+deb10u1+15.4-5~deb10u1)".
