Greg could indeed have been more polite.  I'm afraid that happens on the users 
list sometimes.  I believe the phrase is "If you can't stand the heat, get 
out of the kitchen".

But to do him justice, your original email is not far short of totally 
incomprehensible.  I simply did not understand it.  Having read the thread so 
far, I think I vaguely get the picture.  I too dislike Synaptic, but your 
question does not seem to apply to Synaptic.  Ir appears to refer to Debian 
version, whichever package manager you happen to have chosen.

So let's start at the beginning.

What exactly does your sources.list currently say?  (/etc/apt/sources.list)

Please copy and paste it.

You wish, I think, to go to/remain on Stretch?  But you refer to being on 
Debian 7 which is Wheezy?  Are you talking about two different computers?

Please, some clarity if you want help.
