What is the error message? Does 'apt search ....' find anything? How
about 'apt show ufraw'?

Comment out everything in sources.list and do 'apt update'. There
should now be no package information in lists. Delete pkgcache.bin
and srcpkgcache.bin. Add the single line

  deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian buster main

to sources.list and do 'apt update'. 'apt search ufraw'?

(I'd use "deb http://deb.debian.org/debian buster main" but that is
probably neither here nor there).
