Well, what do you want to do? Change to debian stable or only using pure debian sid/unstable and it's kernel?
"siduction" is more than 90% debian sid/unstable btw.

Yes it is possible to stay in unstable without the siduction-scripts, kernel and fixes (if one needed).
Disable the siduction source lists, remove all siduction related packages, install the debian kernel and remove the siduction kernel, if you really want, than you have a pure debian unstable/sid

How to migrate back to stable? I don't know, best is to install a stable debian from scratch .

Ah, one thing, please change the name from Diduction to siduction!

Install Bunsen Labs linux, and set repos to follow Debian unstable:

System76 Oryx Pro, Intel Core i7-11800H, SSD 970 EVO Plus;  Asus ROG STRIX X299-E, Core i7-7740X, Nvidia GTX-1060, dual monitors, SSD 860 EVO

Sorry, you've missed the right moment for this. When the freeze of unstable ends because a new stable came out, in just that moment are stable, testing and unstable more or less the same. Then is the right time to switch your sources to stable only. It takes a while but after the first updates came to stable the most part of your system should be stable.

Ok, there is more to do: Find the packages that are not in stable and delete them, apt-show-versions is your friend. Then find them in stable or live without them.
Ah and don't forget install a stable kernel in the first place, because the siduction one is not in unstable or testing. I think there will be more bad things to be aware off but as I said: You missed the right time anyway
Wenn Windows die Lösung ist...
kann ich dann bitte das Problem zurück haben?
