    Request for Ubuntu CDRom to install package

    Hello,

    I just upgraded to Hirsute from Groovy, used a USB memory stick and made a clean install.

    Ubuntu is my PC native OS.

    I have tried installing gdebi package through Terminal
    Code:
    sudo apt install gdebi
    .

    It has started the installation but I had to abort it because this message has appeared:
    Do you want to continue? [y/n] y
    Media change: please insert disc labeled 'Ubuntu 21.04_Hirsute Hippo_ - Release amd64 (20210420) in the drive '/cdrom/' and press [Enter]
    I don't have a CD -I installed Hirsute through a USB memory stick! And I have some 400GB still unused in the HDD and 1.5TB free in another external HDD.

    Does anybody know what is happening and how to sort it?

    Thanks.
    Damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead!

    Nothing is happenning, no need to panic. You need to remove the CD-ROM entry from the available sources.
    There is a GUI for that, as shown in the picture below.

    Thank you.

    I had installed a previous distro through the same USB but I don't remember unticking the source -or maybe I had done as the installation had finished without giving it too much of a thought.
