I recently updated a machine from Jessie to Buster (although I did it
in two steps, Jessie -> stretch -> buster).  I too ran out of space
in /usr.  My 500GB disk has two partitions: one for /home and the
other for everything else.  Rather than fight with things any longer
than I already was (nVidia driver problems), I just used gparted to
shave 10GB off my /home partition and give it to /, enlarging it
from 10GB to 20GB.  Problem solved.
