No, the question was, if it is available "with Debian", not if it would
run "on Debian". And the answer is "no", it is and was never available
with (or from) Debian.
It is also no longer officially supported or available for Linux from
Adobe on their official website. Go to
https://get.adobe.com/de/reader/otherversions/ and try to select "Linux"
And the Debian package on their FTP server, containing an old and
outdated, security vulnerable version, may only still be there because
someone forgot to remove it, it could be gone tomorrow.
Sigmentation fault. Core dumped.
