Yes, even assuming everything is working correctly, it takes several
hours for the entire push mirror hierarchy to sync.

Also, some mirrors are not even push-based, they will update from their
upstream mirror every so often (hopefully more than once a day).

You get the updates normally.  If you managed to update to 8.7 just
fine, likely that means your mirror just doesn't have sync'd yet.  Wait
a few hours, and try again.

The /etc/debian_version file usually has the version of Debian installed
in the system.

Try this in a command line shell:
cat /etc/debian_version
