Cannot install Cinnamon on Debian. Is this environment compatible with it?

One year and half ago, I tried to install my new Debian 9 computer with Cinnamon : it failed and froze at installation. Because I had no Linux knowledge I installed Gnome instead.

Today, I am on Debian 10 and I did a try on an Debian 10 VM to be safe… With Cinnamon again, and I installed it that way :

sudo apt-get install cinnamon-desktop-environment cinnamon-l10n -y
  1. The VM started,
  2. after login a Debian wallpaper screen appeared. But it was empty : no icons, no menus, nothing.
  3. Then 30 seconds after a crash message came.

Is Cinnamon definitely not compatible with Debian ?
