It looks like your system is misconfigured. The "stretch/updates"
distribution is part of the debian security archive at
http://deb.debian.org/debian-security, not the main archive at
http://deb.debian.org/debian. You might want to double check your
/etc/apt/sources.list (and/or /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*.list).
