Looks like it installs ok. You have to install libudisks2-0 from
buster with it. This is on a Refracta beowulf (xfce, elogind, upgraded
from ascii)

aptitude -s install udisks2=2.8.1-4 libudisks2-0=2.8.1-4
The following NEW packages will be installed:
libblockdev-fs2{a} libblockdev-loop2{a} libblockdev-part-err2{a}
libblockdev-part2{a} libblockdev-swap2{a} libblockdev-utils2{a}
The following packages will be upgraded:
libudisks2-0 udisks2
The following packages are RECOMMENDED but will NOT be installed:
exfat-utils libblockdev-crypto2
2 packages upgraded, 7 newly installed, 0 to remove and 78 not upgraded.
Need to get 596 kB of archives. After unpacking 969 kB will be used.

Note: Using 'Simulate' mode.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n/?]

Do-acrocy. Ain't gonna happen unless someone does it. And I think
everyone is busy doing other things right now.
