So it lists libtalloc2 as upgradable, but not python3-talloc. Both are produced
from the same source package, and python3-talloc depends on the exact same version
of libtalloc2. Since python3-talloc isn't available (not listed) for some reason,
trying to force-upgrade libtalloc2 invalidates python3-talloc dependencies, and
apt suggests to force-remove it.

I don't know how exactly the bpo archives are built.  The two packages should either
be both new or both old, but not like you're seeing it.

Maybe you hit exact timing when the bpo archive were regenerating and it only indexed
some stuff but not the others? At least I don't know other possibility here.  It
should fix itself after another apt update.
