Installing Debian 9.13

To install Debian 9.13 (stretch), download any of the following images (all i386 and amd64 CD/DVD images can be used on USB sticks too):

netinst CD image (generally 150-280 MB)

Blu-ray (via jigdo)

Instructions how to use the tarballs and general information about loading firmware during an installation can be found in the Installation Guide (see Documentation below).

netinst (generally 240-290 MB) non-free CD images with firmware

Errata for release 9.0

pkgsel did not install updates with ABI changes (by default)
Bug #908711: during installation with network sources enabled, the installed security updates don't include updates that depend on a new binary package, due to a kernel or library ABI change.
Status: This has been fixed in 9.6
APT was vulnerable to a man-in-the-middle attack
A bug in the APT HTTP transport method (CVE-2019-3462) could be exploited by an attacker located as a man-in-the-middle between APT and a mirror to cause the installation of additional, malicious, packages.
This can be mitigated by disabling use of the network during initial installation and then upgrading following the instructions in DSA-4371.
Status: This has been fixed in 9.7
