Many thanks for the suggestion.

However, I think the problem may be on my side.

I have installed Debian Stretch in a virtual box on the same platform
and I don't have any problems with the source.list,  Here's the list
from the VM:

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 9.3.0 _Stretch_ - Official amd64 NETINST
20171209-12:10]/ stretch main 

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 9.3.0 _Stretch_ - Official amd64 NETINST
20171209-12:10]/ stretch main 

deb http://debian.uchicago.edu/debian/ stretch main non-free contrib 
deb-src http://debian.uchicago.edu/debian/ stretch main non-free
contrib 

deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ stretch/updates non-
free contrib main 
deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ stretch/updates
main contrib non-free 

# stretch-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://debian.uchicago.edu/debian/ stretch-updates main contrib
non-free 
deb-src http://debian.uchicago.edu/debian/ stretch-updates main contrib
non-free 

# stretch-backports, previously on backports.debian.org
deb http://debian.uchicago.edu/debian/ stretch-backports main contrib
non-free 
deb-src http://debian.uchicago.edu/debian/ stretch-backports main
contrib non-free 

Yet, I get the same result.  In order for the reload process to go to
completion it's necessary to disable the security entries.

Occam's Razor would suggest that the problem is on my end.

Comment?
