It's not ARM-specific; x86-64 is also affected for me.

The cause is that both libwacom2 and libwacom9 depend on libwacom-common in the version identical to the libwacom(number) version.

I assume that you have libwacom2 and libwacom-common installed from a previous Ubuntu release, or a older version in Jammy that meanwhile has been superseded.

sudo apt install libwacom9 libwacom-common=2.1.0-2
sudo apt install libwacom9 libwacom2-
sudo apt remove libwacom2
should help.

Eventually a "conflicts:libwacom2" clause in libwcom9's control file could help.

today I tried to uninstall the libinput2 package, but I don't have this
package installed on my raspberry pi.

The package cannot even be installed - the package cannot be found.

I was able to workaround the issue with:

sudo apt install ./libwacom-common_2.1.0-2_all.deb

Then apt upgrade works.
