typo: etc and not ... ect.
Code: Select all
cat /etc/apt/sources.list

should give:
Code: Select all
deb https://deb.debian.org/debian buster main contrib non-free
deb https://deb.debian.org/debian-security buster/updates main

You need to edit this /etc/apt/sources.list file, and modify it as requested.
I don't know what is your preference to edit a file as root user. Find your way.

deb https://deb.debian.org/debian buster main
deb https://deb.debian.org/debian-security buster/updates main
deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free

still gives this, and unsure how to modify. Everytime I try and enter that code it doesn't give me anything back. Urgh

If you don't modify the file, the output is the same: there is some logic here.
You can try as root:
Code: Select all
apt edit-sources

You edit what you need, and close with ^O (to save) and ^X (to quit).

I remember some story with multi-arch evolutions over upgrades, but really not familiar with. I never used it.
I am not the best support for that.
If someone installed multiarch on Buster, or even steam... it should help.

Ah shoot. Well, I thank you for your patience and time anyways. ^^ Maybe someone with knowledge in that area will come along and help out at a later time. But either way thank you!

@OP: try adding the buster-updates repositories then update the database and install steam.

L_V never includes them when giving advice, not sure why.

I don't see any explicit discrepancies with official Debian security update.
https://www.debian.org/security/

I don't see the difference between "deb.debian.org/debian-security" and "www.debian.org/security/".

stable-updates (which is not stable/updates):
"used for updates such as virus scanners and timezone data."

If your intention is not criticism only, can you be more positive to explain what is "missing", which should concretely help Lycanea to install steam ?
