Why is asking to insert a cdrom if I am fetching a German repository?

If I try to install a .deb file I receive the following output:

Media change: please insert the disc labeled 'Debian GNU/Linux 9.2.1 Stretch - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20171013-13:09'

  • what is in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/? and please remove those blank lines from the output listing. – ctrl-alt-delor May 27 at 21:29

    I notice you refer it to it as source.list. I just wanted to make sure that you are actually referring to sources.list, right? What other files do you have in /etc/apt? – Gaurav May 28 at 19:00
  • Welcome, your question is unclear , please add the output of ls /etc/apt/ , as said in the @Gaurav comment. – GAD3R May 29 at 21:39

Double check /etc/apt/sources.list and all files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d for lines that contain cdrom:. Ensure they are all commented out. Then run apt update.
