I'm struggling with the same problem. Installing libpulse0 wants to uninstall a bunch of stuff including Cinnamon. However, I get the same problem when I try the proposed solution:

Code: Select all

rua@rua-desktop ~ $ sudo apt install libpulse0=1:11.1-1ubuntu7.4

FWIW, I remember I had to re-install pulseaudio-module-bluetooth after the library downgrade, as my Bluetooth stopped working. You can always make a Timeshift backup so you have a restore point when something goes wrong. A live USB, too, if you need that safety net.
