Example where Whonix ™ backports APT pinning instructions broke users systems:
- user documentation template: Template:Apt-Pinning

- Debian bug linux-image-amd64 vs linux-headers-amd64 Debian buster-backports version mismatch bpo.2 vs bpo.3 [archive] shows that just enabling backports repository might lead to issues. In this example, breaking all kernel modules due to kernel image vs kernel headers version mismatch from backports packages.debian.org.
