[SOLVED] daedalus apt upgrade you have requested an impossible situation

Hello everybody!

a couple of days ago changed repos from 'chimaera' to 'daedalus'
now 'apt upgrade' gives

# apt upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done
Calculating upgrade... Done
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:
 libwacom9 : Depends: libwacom-common (= 2.2.0-1) but 1.8-2 is to be installed
E: Broken packages

is this ok cause 'apt-get upgrade' works without warnings or issues?

Please post the output of

apt policy
grep -v '^$\|^#' /etc/apt/sources.list{,.d/*}

To obtain a root shell use su -. Using just su will result in "command not found" messages.

Try

# apt update
# apt upgrade
# apt full-upgrade

EDIT: might be best to remove Skype and it's repository beforehand though. You can (try to) add them back afterwards.
