Does not work because I have "bullseye-backports..." in my 
sources.list.  But Interestingly, apt install -t bullseye-backports 
lazurus fpc *does work* but this (which is what I used initially) does not -

sudo apt install fpc/bullseye-backports

..... ALL OK

sudo apt install fpc-source/bullseye-backports

..... ALL OK

dbannon at debbulljune:~$ sudo apt install lazarus/bullseye-backports

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  lazarus-2.2 : Depends: lazarus-ide (>= 2.2.2+dfsg1-1~bpo11+1)
                Recommends: lazarus-doc-2.2 but it is not going to be 
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I have attached two screenshots from Synaptic, note that before the CLI 
install, (pre-install.png) there is no "lazarus" associated with 2.2.2, 
its only 2.0.10 but after a successful CLI install, the "lazarus" has 
now become 2.2.2. Uninstall 2.2.2 and Synaptic again only shows lazarus 
as 2.0.10. All the other backported packages are listed at all times.

Anyway, this issue (if it is an issue) only matters to package builders, 
for regular FPC/Lazarus users, its all OK.
