Do you use EDS as storage? There is no syncebook in the list of
available backend modules.
How did you install SyncEvolution? The Debian package was removed from
Testing because of some build-from-source error; a revised package is
now in unstable and waiting to reappear in Testing.
I suspect your copy of syncevolution-libs-gnome probably had to be
removed when you updated your system to a new EDS version. You need to
reinstall it, once it is available again.
Alternatively you can install from the APT repo on syncevolution.org
That's how I run SyncEvolution on Debian Testing.
