Even though the OS is running fine, I did find it peculiar that there were no apt updates since I installed the OS on 9-28, and even then when I tried to update after a fresh install, apt said that everything was up to date. This is the first distro I've used (including other debian versions) that didn't update immediately after install, let alone not have any updates in over two weeks. Not that it's really an issue, but it has me wondering if something's wrong with my apt settings maybe? The readout in the terminal for sudo apt update is:
Hit:1 http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye InRelease
Hit:2 https://ftp.postgresql.org/pub/pgadmin/pgadmin4/apt/bullseye pgadmin4 InRelease
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done
All packages are up to date.

I uncommented the last line in the sources.list to see if that was the issue, but no difference really, still says everything is up to date:
sudo apt update
Hit:1 http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye InRelease
Get:2 http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye/main Sources [8,633 kB]
Hit:3 https://ftp.postgresql.org/pub/pgadmin/pgadmin4/apt/bullseye pgadmin4 InRelease
Fetched 8,633 kB in 26s (335 kB/s)

Below is an example of a sources.list for Debian 11/Bullseye.
Code:
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye main contrib non-free
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye main contrib non-free

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian-security/ bullseye-security main contrib non-free
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian-security/ bullseye-security main contrib non-free

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye-updates main contrib non-free
See: https://wiki.debian.org/SourcesList
If you are not interested in source code, comment out the deb-src lines with #. That should help.

Thanks I will look into that, I knew something didn't seem right, not sure why it installed that way though

You can also copy the source list from the live USB/Dvd disc used to install debian in the first place. If that's how you installed it.
Code:
sudo cp /usr/share/doc/apt/examples/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list
Then do sudo update
Good luck.
