Devoir = must / to have to.
Je dois acheter = I have to buy / I must buy
There is no future or past of MUST in English. We use 'have to' to express 'must' in those tenses.
I had to study last weekend for my exam yesterday.
I must /have to study today for the exam tomorrow.
I will have to study next week for the final exam.
To say should in French, use the conditional of devoir
Je devrais acheter = I should buy
Duo is usually pretty good about this with the occasional exception.
