Hi John,

probably booting issue is somewhere else, not in GDM.

I'm not sure which package has given these error messages but if it was
GRUB, just try to reinstall it. Even you can try to install EFI version
of GRUB.

By the way it seems that GDM has a bug in Buster so if you are a GNOME
user then you can consider to use LightDM
