Codename:       jessie

I am installing a software which requires libssl1.1.

How / Where can I find this package for debian jessie 8.5?


On Debian 8, you can install the Debian 9 libssl1.1 package:

wget http://deb.debian.org/debian/pool/main/o/openssl/libssl1.1_1.1.0j-1~deb9u1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i libssl1.1_1.1.0j-1~deb9u1_amd64.deb

Note that you will have to keep an eye on eventual security updates manually, or configure repositories with pinning to automatically pull libssl1.1 from Debian 9 while avoiding a full-blown upgrade to Debian 9.

  • So stretch is debian 9 ? So he can just download the .deb file from the links down there. – PrograMed IP Mar 19 at 9:45

    Since you’d come up with the gist of it, I took the liberty of re-writing your answer rather than adding my own, I hope you don’t mind (feel free to revert if you do). – Stephen Kitt Mar 19 at 9:51
