Hi *,

I just want to do some tests with kernels in "stretch" and therefore
was looking for packet "kernel-package".

	apt install kernel-package
leads to 
	E: Package 'kernel-package' has no installation candidate

Is this a bug or is kernel building in stretch different to jessie?

It's a bug. The package tracker page for kernel-package
<https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/kernel-package> states that the package
was removed from strech because the new version introduced a new,
serious-level bug: #848066. The bug was not fixed in time for the
release, so the package was dropped (it's still in unstable, though, so
it may return for buster).



For more information, please reread.
