    Apparently Google started in January to delist sites, not indexing sitemaps (the latter happened for one of my sites).
    I think backlinks will not stay forever in google search console anyway, google delete old ones expecting new backlinks to show up.

    Google Search Console is not a great source for determining backlinks. Many years ago, they did show all the links, but I personally don't concern myself with their results.

    A hundred external sites seems like a lot, but considering the fact that tens if not hundreds of thousands of sites get demoted, delisted, unindexed at any given moment you should not be surprised when you notice a wild fluctuation like you're describing.

    This is strange, may be a bug from search console. Did you try checking links in other backlinks tools?
