Great diagnosis, Josh!

Synaptic tells me that I have libusb-0.1-4, libusb-1.0-0 and their dev

I have been here before, I think, and when I try to uninstall the 0.1
variant, it removes 'the world'. The last time I didn't check on what
was being removed so had to reinstall OS and everything from the ground

Is there a smarter way to remove the pesky 0.1 s?

         Thanks again for solving the mystery,

              Kind Regards,
