When I try to update my packages on my Chromebook (with Linux installed on it) I do this:
sudo apt-get update, and it gives me this error:
Ign:1 https://deb.debian.org/debian stretch InRelease Ign:2 https://deb.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates InRelease Err:3 https://deb.debian.org/debian stretch Release Err:4 https://deb.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates Release Reading package lists... Done E: The repository 'https://deb.debian.org/debian stretch Release' does no longer have a Release file. N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default. N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default. N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
Because of this I am no longer able to install packages (and or update) in the terminal.
PS: it's not only when I update, when I tried to install Firefox I used
sudo apt-get install firefox-esr. but it gave me this:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Suggested packages: fonts-stix | otf-stix fonts-lmodern The following NEW packages will be installed: firefox-esr 0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

Note that I am not questioning how to install firefox, I want to fix the errors.
Also: when I type
ls /etc/apt/sources.list it returns
/etc/apt/sources.list only. When I type
lsb_release -a it returns:
No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Debian Description: Debian GNU/Linux 9.8 (stretch) Release: 9.8 Codename: stretch
When I type
cat /etc/*-release it returns:
PRETTY_NAME="Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)" NAME="Debian GNU/Linux" VERSION_ID="9" VERSION="9 (stretch)" ID=debian HOME_URL="https://www.debian.org/" SUPPORT_URL="https://www.debian.org/support" BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.debian.org/"
And finally when I type
cat /proc/version it says:

When I cat into
/etc/apt/sources.list it gives me:
