Do you have a question?

Your suspicion is correct. Kaby Lake (G4560) gfx is not supported on 8.8. It's
much too new. If you wish to use your Kaby Lake gfx, either install Stretch
instead of Jessie, or upgrade Jessie's kernel to one that supports Kaby Lake (4.9).

Your subject error message is a standard/common Gnome error that results from
trying to use gfx that has insufficient Xorg driver and/or hardware support.
