This issue is common on testing/bullseye (until it is frozen for release).

The manual solution is to try upgrading just one of the listed packages (with "apt install <package>"), and see if that would lead to any important packages (freedombox, apps) being removed. If it would remove an important package, then you can cancel the upgrade. It may remove some non-important or obsolete packages, such as python2 packages, and that is ok.
