did an update, got a message that I have no idea what it means!

rpcbind (1.2.5-0.3+deb10u1) buster; urgency=medium

Since version 1.2.5 upstream has turned off the remote calls functionality
in order to improve security. This can be turned on at build time.
This functionality caused rpcbind to open up random listening ports. This
change broke up broadcasts requests to rpcbind making systems depending
on this feature unusable, e.g. NIS systems.

This release accepts the new command line parameter 'r' to turn on the
remote calls functionality when needed.

there was an update on the rpcbind package from debian, and this is the changelog explaining it. it is shown for informational purpose to the system administrator while doing the upgrade.

TL;DR: nothing to worry about
