That Github page is a very optimistic way to fix Frankendebian. From the error message, you still have remnants of testing/sid. The only 100% reliable way to get back to stable is to reinstall from scratch.

Yes, the "blah blah is to be installed" is somewhat misleading, since it really means that newer version is already installed. The libc6 package is actually interconnected with a bunch of other newer Debian testing packages that were upgraded at the same time, so just forcing in one deb is unlikely to have managed the full downgrade. Using the "origin" feature in the Synaptic package manager might show you what else you still have installed from upstream Debian.
