Your problem is related to Raspian Buster having been offically released before Debian Buster.
It will no doubt go away when the next Raspbian image is released in a month or two.

Till then, start with sudo apt -y update
Wrong solution. :x

I beg to differ, it solves the problem.

Did you sync and unmount the drive before removing ?

TBH I suspect that the problem is not the file system or the operating system.
What do you expect from journaling ?
