I had rongly assumed that you were trying to install buster packages

Sorry, should have made myself more clear.  Yes, I'm already at buster.

Actually, your subject line was explicit enough! :)

Have you already tried?:

$ apt-get clean && apt-get update && apt search ufraw

This does the job!  The only thing I had not done previously is

     apt-get clean

but for some reason this has fixed things.  I'm not sure I understand
why, mind you.

In a nutshell:

The 'clean' command will remove what the 'update' command has downloaded.

It looks like in your case your package index files were some how corrupted.
That's why cleaning and updating did the trick! :)
As recommended by the below URL 'apt-get update' is required before installing/upgrading package(s). If you go command line I would suggest you to familiorise yourself with the following commands:
apt-get {clean|autoclean|update|upgrade|dist-upgrade}


Now time to work on my photos! :-)

Nice to hear that it is working for you.
Do not hesitate to come back if you need more info.
