In case if Debian cannot found CD-ROM or DVD with Debian packages yo may have error:

Media change: please insert the disc labeled
'Debian GNU/Linux 9.11.0 _Stretch_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20190908-18:12'
in the drive '/media/cdrom/' and press [Enter]

Media change please insert the disc labeled Debian

 

To fix this open open and edit with any text editor sources.list file:

# nano /etc/apt/sources.list

 

Output example:

debian sources.list

As you see from my example file contains line with cdrom package:

deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 9.11.0 _Stretch_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20190908-18:12]/ stretch contrib main

 

So we need comment and remove that line.

After editing, sources.list file should look like this:

#deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 9.11.0 _Stretch_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20190908-18:12]/ stretch contrib main

deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main contrib
deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main contrib

# stretch-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
# A network mirror was not selected during install. The following entries
# are provided as examples, but you should amend them as appropriate
# for your mirror of choice.
#
# deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ stretch-updates main contrib
# deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian/ stretch-updates main contrib

 

After saving re-run apt-get update command

# apt-get update

As you see now Debian connecting to online repositories.

apt-get update
