I changed sources.list to point only to sid, then apt-get clean, then apt-get update, apt-get -u dist-upgrade. /etc/debian_version and /etc/issue still say I have 9.0. Can held back non-essential packages stonewall a dist-upgrade? mc and mc-lang 4.8.17 have been held back by me manually because 4.8.18 is broken. Is this why I don't seem to have sid?

sid doesn't have a version number

stretch and sid both use the same base-file package, so /etc/debian_version is the same
