Fix version number requirements #2724

Update dialog to state that the minimum Ubuntu is 16.04 (upon which Linux Mint 18 is based), and set the Debian version to 9 for Ubuntu 16 & 17 / Mint 18 and 10 for Ubuntu 18 & 19 / Mint 19.

This fixes the issue I encountered where the installer would attempt to install ES 2.7.6 instead of stable on Mint 18.3 and Ubuntu 16.04, and fail due to missing Boost libraries.

This was actually intentional - I will need to revert this part. Although we don't support versions less than 9, we don't stop retropie-setup from launching (the main setup script has an additional warning).
