No, I'm on stretch, so I'm using the stretch repository:
deb http://ftp.it.debian.org/debian/ stretch main non-free contrib

Since stretch is still in testing, several packages get upgraded regularly. On 
of those was chromium, which some days ago was upgraded from ver. 58 to 59. I 
believe version 58 now is no longer in the stretch repository, so if you ask 
apt to install that version, it doesn't find that.

Yes, I see, and in fact apt would be my preferred tool, if downgrading were 
possible with it.
