I'm not sure exactly where that one's coming from.
Hardened kernels were dropped (because grsec went private), and the last
available package (as far as I can tell) is 4.9.65-r1 - a lower version.


- linux-headers don't have a -dev variant, and are the headers for
interacting with the kernel (in /usr/include)
- kernel artifacts such as above are in a <kerver>-dev package
- you appear to be using a relatively old kernel, which does not have

is that grsec patches (as they were pre-private) aren't compatible with
