Yes we are all correct here. I have great respect for Head_on_a_Stick and didn't take his post as even slightly denigrating.

There are some strange issues here:
- Why is linux-headers-4.9.0-5-amd64 not located when it exists currently in Stretch main repo?
- Why does kernel 4.14 appear at all?

@super.panda did you run apt update before attempting to install headers?
Wizard's above suggestion to install the metapackage is a good one too.

Posting the output of apt-cache policy (or inxi -r) will help a lot.

Why people here advise long arcane scripts to see APT's policies escapes me. :roll:
Code: Select all
apt-cache policy


Since it's Stretch:

Code: Select all
apt policy
