 Aah sorry i misread your mail, i thought you upgraded all the way from
gluster 3.x.

So you used the glusterfs-repo the whole time. Well for the dist-upgrade it
is always recommended to disable external repositories. And then i wouldn't
try to go directly from a stretch-"5"-package to buster-"6" - instead:

either: stretch-"5" -> stretch-"6" -> buster-"6"
or: stretch "5" -> buster-"5" -> buster-"6"

I don't think removing and reinstalling the packages should be necessary,
but as long as it worked for you all is good..
