I've upgraded three RPi 4s to Bullseye so far and each one had the NumLock forced on at boot and RFkill stopped WiFi working despite anything I did. This is really disappointing. So is the appalling Raspbian distribution upgrade malarkey we're forced to go through each time. The Raspbian crowd should be ashamed of themselves for putting their users through this awful experience. No wonder Linux is the least used desktop OS! The suggestion of backing up and doing a clean install each time is such a cop-out and pathetic.
Microsoft cannot even roll out monthly/quarterly updates without borking systems, let alone full version updates, but somehow Debian and RPT is supposed to rollout major release upgrades that apply seamlessly to your tweaked install?
Methinks your expectations are slightly unrealistic.
* deal with it, lots of folks have successfully upgraded and there is an update process that seems fairly successful (the closer you are to a default install, the more likely it will just work)
* stay on Buster until things settle out
* go down the recommended path, build a fresh SD card with Bullseye, and copy your user data across
As I am (mostly) past the "oh new/shiney" stage, I am happily staying on Buster until the Calibre/qt issues get sorted on Bullseye.
