I have got Debian stable and I'm trying to install new versions of debhelper and lintian from backports. However, apt-get claims that the packages are already the newest versions and installs nothing. Command "apt-get show" shows the new versions (from backports) of the packages, too. How can I install the new packages from backports?

apt-get install packagename/stretch-backports
apt-get install -t stretch-backports packagename
