I totally re-installed buster from scratch to guarantee that there was nothing 
else affecting the problem, then

In each case where it failed:
su and login with the root password, then
# adduser --uid=xxx username
bash: adduser: command not found
# shutdown -r +1
bash: shutdown: command not found

No problem after ctrl+alt+F1 then simple login as root.
