Re: Reverting mixed system to stable?
Jim, thank you for your suggestion. I didn't know about this tool. Unfortunately, I have 66 packages marked "No available version," most of whose names I don't recognize, and nothing marked 'testing'.
I think I'm back to rebuilding the system from scratch.
Thanks, again, for writing.

There is a tool called apt-show-versions, which can display in which
distribution each installed package is. So
apt-show-versions | grep -v stable
will giv you a list of all installed packages, which are not in the stable
