Re: cdrom to source list

Mount the ISO image under a directory (eg, /cdrom) and use

deb file:/cdrom chimaera main

Alternatively run

# apt-cdrom add

Then insert the CD/DVD.

Re: cdrom to source list

Apt looks for the cdrom at /media/cdrom, so for the non-live ISO I did:

mount -o loop,ro -t iso9660 /mnt/devuan_chimaera_4.0.0_amd64_desktop.iso /media/cdrom

(If necessary, do mount /dev/sdX1 /mnt or equivalent first, or copy the ISO to the local disk and update the path.)

Then, given an /etc/apt/sources.list which already contained...

deb cdrom:[Devuan GNU/Linux 4.0 chimaera amd64 - desktop 20211012]/ chimaera contrib main nonfree

...I removed contrib and nonfree, and needed to set allow-insecure=yes like so:

deb [ allow-insecure=yes ] cdrom:[Devuan GNU/Linux 4.0 chimaera amd64 - desktop 20211012]/ chimaera main

(In addition to the ISO filename, I assume the live ISO has a different cdrom label also.)

mount -o loop,ro -t iso9660 /mnt/devuan_chimaera_4.0.0_amd64_desktop.iso /media/cdrom

deb file:/cdrom chimaera main
added to config file.

sudo aptupdate
Error output.

Mine did.

Maybe it got added by apt-cdrom add - I don't think I ran that, but can't say for certain.

If you've mounted the ISO under /media/cdrom then you should put the same directory in sources.list. Surely that's obvious, even with a language barrier?

EDIT: and why are you combining the differing advice from two respondents? That's even weirder.
