I always only install from netinstall so i am not sure, but maybe you have some lines commented out in sources.list ?

post output from sources.list
Code: Select all
cat /etc/apt/sources.list

Your images here don't load, you realise that ? :mrgreen:

And from what i can see, you have sources commented out.

You can try to remove everything from sources.list , and paste this:

Code: Select all
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ stable main contrib

Do you have a wired connection? Broadcom = a pain to set up wifi without one, due to Debian not having permission one way or another to host the firmware in non-free.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Krita 3.3.3, Pale Moon 27.7.2, Yacreader 9.0rc1, Calligra 3.1, VLC 3.0.0, Firefox 58.0.2, QMPlay2 17.12.31

i might catch hell for this, but this guy Craigevil, helped me out a lot when I first started my Debian journey.
https://sites.google.com/site/mydebiansourceslist/ go down to stable, copy the non-free links to your sources list, just change the release name, update. Go into synaptic, look for firmware linux non-free, and update. its been a few years since I used broadcom but it was a pain. i believe the Debian Wiki has a work around for broadcom issues.

Of course using some of those sources are outside the guide lines, so, its on you if you want to use them, good luck.

When doing an installation of Debian, whether netinst or CD or DVD, choose Expert mode to get more options. One of the options is to include non-free repositories, another option is to set up sources.list with your country. if you choose this, when the installation is complete, your will have solved one of your issues.

The other issue regarding non-free WiFi drivers such as broadcom can be found in this unofficial image. https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/non-free/cd-including-firmware/
