I upgraded from Buster to Bullseye and changed the repository:
deb liquorix.net/debian bullseye main
deb-src liquorix.net/debian bullseye main

I tried installing the kernel but was met with a dependency error:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
linux-headers-liquorix-amd64 : Depends: linux-headers-5.13.0-12.1-liquorix-amd64 (= 5.13-7.1~bullseye) but 5.13-7.1~buster is to be installed
linux-image-liquorix-amd64 : Depends: linux-image-5.13.0-12.1-liquorix-amd64 (= 5.13-7.1~bullseye) but 5.13-7.1~buster is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Is the the Liquorix kernel not ready for Debian 11 yet? I can change the repository back to Buster and install that, but that's not the OS version I'm currently on and could cause issues.

It looks like I didn't properly update the symlinks for what testing, stable, and oldstable correspond to. I fixed that and also kicked out another build in-case that has any consequence.

But now looking closer at your post, I think you did something weird with apt-get. What happens when you run the standard command on the website? sudo apt-get install linux-image-liquorix-amd64 linux-headers-liquorix-amd64

Also the line below I think also means other issue are going on:
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

That you have held packages error can be slightly deceiving, sometimes, I think usually, something else actually has held it.

To verify:
:: Code ::
dpkg -l | grep ^hi

if a package is listed, that needs to be explicitly unheld.
:: Code ::
sudo echo "package_name install"| sudo dpkg --set-selections

There's also a newer syntax for this which I'd never seen before:
:: Code ::
sudo apt-mark unhold $(apt-mark showhold)

that seems a bit more intuitive, I know for myself, I've never been able to remember the dpkg --set-selections thing without looking it up.
