More information:

The Debian Long Term Support (LTS) Team hereby announces that Debian 9 stretch support has reached its end-of-life on July 1, 2022, five years after its initial release on June 17, 2017.

Debian will not provide further security updates for Debian 9. A subset of stretch packages will be supported by external parties. Detailed information can be found at Extended LTS.

The LTS Team will prepare the transition to Debian 10 buster, which is the current oldstable release. The LTS team will take over support from the Security Team during August, while the final point update for buster will be released during that month.

Debian 10 will also receive Long Term Support for five years after its initial release with support ending on June 30, 2024. The supported architectures will be announced at a later date.

For further information about using buster and upgrading from stretch LTS, please refer to LTS/Using.

Debian and its LTS Team would like to thank all contributing users, developers and sponsors who are making it possible to extend the life of previous stable releases, and who have made this LTS a success.

If you rely on Debian LTS, please consider joining the team, providing patches, testing or funding the efforts.
