Did you check among those files if there is firmware that you need?
Also, if you have another USB stick, just to be sure, try with it too?
>From quick search in debian packages, these are all related to b43:

https://packages.debian.org/jessie/firmware-b43-installer

https://packages.debian.org/jessie/b43-fwcutter

https://packages.debian.org/jessie/firmware-b43legacy-installer

So check if your hardware is related to any of those. Also, once, for
reason unknown to me, firmware from usb did not work, but installer with
firmware on it did. Could be that it was USB fault, though not sure
about it. Was using that USB without problem after that.
