Who didn't get what?

I expected it to. Here's the same listing with nonessential lines excised:
-rw-r--r-- 1 17388979 Jan 9 17:45 initrd.img-4.9.0-4-686-pae
-rw-r--r-- 1 17392772 Jan 9 17:44 initrd.img-4.9.0-5-686-pae
-rw-r--r-- 1 3643920 Dec 22 19:39 vmlinuz-4.9.0-4-686-pae
-rw-r--r-- 1 3645296 Jan 4 06:12 vmlinuz-4.9.0-5-686-pae
Clearly, 4.9.0-4 and 4.9.0-5 pae kernels are present, the very kernels in the OP
that, as I read, deloptes subsequently claimed were "one and the same package"
(could not coexist).
