At this point in time, buster and testing are the same. The difference will
be important with the new Debian release (2 years away), when buster becomes
stable and bullseye become testing.

It seems to be the "apt-get update" part of output, which is curiously terse.
If update is not working, then upgrade will neither work, naturally. Just to
be sure that "update" output is not trimmed somehow, could you run the command
below and attach the generated "update.log" file here?

# apt-get update 2>&1 | tee update.log

It would be better if you also attach /etc/apt/sources.list
