I just ran
Code: Select all
# apt-get install fonts-liberation2
No problem.

Your source http://deb.debian.org/debian is bad, gives 404. Try http://ftp.debian.org/debian/

My source.list looks like this:
Code: Select all
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ stretch  main

deb http://security.debian.org/ stretch/updates main

This package installs on my system with no problem.

My sources list:

Code: Select all
deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ stretch main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ stretch/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ stretch-updates main contrib non-free
deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ stretch-backports main contrib non-free
deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org/ stretch main non-free


Perhaps this helps.
Currently running Debian 9 GNOME on a Dell Inspiron 1545 and a Dell OptiPlex 3010.

rivenathos, you might want to block your deb-multimedia source with a #. That is a good place to source particular packages to solve particular problems but leaving it open can expose you to packages you don't want during regular security updates. It's not that deb-multimedia is a bad source but it can be ahead of the curve and cause compatibility issues. (Voice of experience on this one :wink: )
