Does no debe stand for must not or don't have to ?
Generally "no debe" means "he/she/you formal must not". For "don't have to" we would use "No tener que". For example:
"No debe comer durante una hora." = You must not eat for an hour.
"No tiene que solicitar el empleo. Ya es suyo." = You don't have to apply for the job. It is yours already.
