In general, this is a very difficult problem.

Your easy options:

. restore from backup


. change from "stable" to "stretch" and do an apt-get
dist-upgrade to bring you all the way into stretch.

All other options are much, much harder. They tend to work when
you have a few packages that you have installed by mistake, and 
not otherwise.
