On what architecture?

This is debian of Borg after all

 The following are the officially supported architectures for Debian 9:

    32-bit PC (i386) and 64-bit PC (amd64)

    64-bit ARM (arm64)

    ARM EABI (armel)

    ARMv7 (EABI hard-float ABI, armhf)

    MIPS (mips (big-endian) and mipsel (little-endian))

    64-bit little-endian MIPS (mips64el)

    64-bit little-endian PowerPC (ppc64el)

    IBM System z (s390x) 

They have however dropped powerpc

Still supporting i386 so no worries you can still install debian on your 486

	See You
