No. It is the wrong flavor of SYSLINUX software and much too old.
Even debian-8.1.0-amd64-netinst.iso has "ISOLINUX 6.03 20150107"
and debian-9.3.0-amd64-netinst.iso has "ISOLINUX 6.03 20171018".
(mount as /mnt/iso and do
   strings /mnt/iso/isolinux/isolinux.bin | fgrep ISOLINUX | less
 to see the message text of the boot program.

Our new friend Larry sees "Syslinux 4.03 2010-10-22", which i would
blame on boot preparations on the USB stick which should have been
overwritten by the ISO, if it was copied correctly.

... or from a fresh attempt to install the ISO onto the USB stick by
one of the ISO-to-stick converters (unetbootin, Rufus, ...).

Have a nice day :)
