I’ve updated my Debian 8 droplet to Debian 9, and it seems to work fine. However, there is no Debian 9 kernel in the list of available kernels for my droplet. Is that normal?
My current kernel is “Debian 8.0 x64 vmlinuz-3.16.0-4-amd64 (3.16.7-ckt9-3~deb8u1)”.

You can use your own kernel (e.g.: the default Debian 9 installed on dist-upgrade).
