Why did you do that in the first place?

You could install linux-image-5.2.0-3-amd64-unsigned manually, but then
you lose the linux-image-amd64 metapackage and will miss automatic
upgrades to newer kernels which is probably not what you want.

What exactly bugs you about the signed kernel?  The kernel is so big
that the extra signatures hardly make a difference.
