"Debian Bug report logs - #851175
plasma-workspace - All shell packages missing. This is an installation issue, please contact your distribution - missing dependency on plasma-desktop-data" I got hit with this one "All shell packages missing." while updating a Buster install today, it started with dpkg not being able to overwrite package "desktop-profiles" so instead of doing a force install I chose to purge the package and completed the update then reinstalled desktop-profiles, on reboot, after login is when I got hit with "All shell packages missing." and plasma would not start and it seems to be ambiguous from what I get searching the net, in my case the problem was package "desktop-profiles" being installed and purging desktop-profiles solved the problem and Plasma starts fine now.

Why would "desktop-profiles" being installed keep plasma from starting? Upgrade-system said the system was completely updated and clean with no orphaned packages before I rebooted.
