The Debian LTS (Long Term Support) team announced today that Debian GNU/Linux 9 “Stretch” operating system series has now officially reached its end of life (EOL) after being supported for more than five years.

Debian GNU/Linux 9 “Stretch” was released on June 17th, 2017, and it was superseded by the Debian GNU/Linux 10 “Buster” series on July 6th, 2019. At that point in time, Debian GNU/Linux 9 “Stretch” support was transferred to the Debian LTS project to extend its lifetime to up to five years for those who needed it.

Those five years are now gone as the end of life was reached on June 30th, 2022. Therefore, as of July 1st, 2022, the Debian Project will cease to provide further security updates to the Debian GNU/Linux 9 “Stretch” operating system series, urging users to upgrade their installation to a supported release.
