[SOLVED] What should my sources.list look like?

Hi all! I did a fresh install this morning but because my ethernet port is shoddy it couldn't connect to the internet to update repositories while installing. Then when I logged in, I'm missing a huge number of contrib and non-free repos and I need Nvidia drivers for my work. Unfortunately, I appear to be missing a lot of default repositories, and I don't think my attempting to add them back worked fully.

When I run "cat /etc/apt/sources.list" here's the output.

"# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 10 _Lithium_ - Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20210130-13:51]/ buster contrib main non-free

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 10 _Lithium_ - Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20210130-13:51]/ buster contrib main non-free

## Debian security updates
# Line commented out by installer because it failed to verify:
deb https://deb.debian.org/debian-security/ buster/updates main contrib non-free 

# buster-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
# Line commented out by installer because it failed to verify:
deb https://deb.debian.org/debian/ buster-updates main contrib non-free 
# deb-src https://deb.debian.org/debian/ buster-updates main contrib non-free

# This system was installed using small removable media
# (e.g. netinst, live or single CD). The matching "deb cdrom"
# entries were disabled at the end of the installation process.
# For information about how to configure apt package sources,
# see the sources.list(5) manual.

deb http://pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian/ buster-backports main contrib non-free "

Attempting to install something like nvidia-detect fails to locate package, and doing an apt update throws up the following as well.

How do I go about fixing this?

On https://www.bunsenlabs.org/repositories.html, is recent and previous BunsenLabs repos listed. As you can see, buster-backports only carry component main.

In the post, Sources - Lithium sources.list and backports details, is repos for BL release Lithium listed, both BL and Debian repos.

I did find that link to the bunsenlabs repos while searching and I added it, which fixed a few problems, but after looking carefully I think I was missing the default debian repos which Bunsen needed to build on. Currently got that updating to see if it helps.

Yep, it's fixed! I feel so silly, I was missing the base
"deb https://deb.debian.org/debian buster main contrib non-free"
so nothing would resolve when I tried to download most stuff.
