You're running Debian-stable. You can't get advanced, near-edge
software prepackaged in Debian-stable; that's simply not what that
development track is for. The Debian-stable track is for boringly
stable and ultra-reliable versions of everything provided, usually at
the expense of being behind the curve on software versions and thus
If you want ultra-stable, boringly predictable prepackaged binary
software, stay with Debian-stable. If you want access to cutting-edge
software, upgrade to the testing or unstable tracks (or testing with
access to unstable). Pick one. ;->
