Debian version 8 and 9 are available for the armel architecture, which
includes Kirkwood CPUs. However, distribution upgrades are not performed
with 'apt-get update' alone. You will need to modify
/etc/apt/sources.list to point to a newer release first, then run
'apt-get update ; apt-get dist-upgrade'.

It should be enough to replace every occurrence of 'wheezy' in the
sources.list with 'jessie' to upgrade to Debian 8. If everything works
after that, replace 'jessie' again with 'stretch' and run the
update/dist-upgrade again to upgrade to Debian 9. Don't try to upgrade
from7 to 9 in one step! You could stick with Debian 8 for a while since
it will continue to get security updates for at least a year or so.
