My guess is that somehow you used a stale file when you got that
message. There are several ways to do that accidentally.
I've downloaded the .iso from the address you posted, and it has the
timestamp you just reported; to be precise (and precision helps):
40894464 Mar 4 13:38 /home/debian/mini.iso
Booting from this .iso reports this kernel version on VC2:
~ # uname -a
Linux (none) 4.9.0-6-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.82-1+deb9u3 (2018-03-02) x86_64 GNU/Linux
which should be compatible with the current version running the same
$ uname -a
Linux wren 4.9.0-6-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.88-1+deb9u1 (2018-05-07) x86_64 GNU/Linux
Perhaps you could reproduce your "bug" as before, and report the full
line as above.
