Ubuntu: Problem with sudo apt get update: The repository cdrom… does not have a Release file



Question:

Every time I try update (using sudo apt-get update) my Ubuntu I get this problem:

W: The repository 'cdrom://Ubuntu 16.04 LTS _Xenial Xerus_ - Release amd64 (20160420.1) xenial Release' does not have a Release file.  N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.  N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

How can I fix it?
I use Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


Solution:1

Try this:
Open Software & Updates and in the Ubuntu Software tab uncheck Cdrom with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 'Xenial Xerus' under the section Installable from CD-ROM/DVD.


Solution:2

To resolve this problem from terminal you must remove/comment this CD-ROM repository source directly from /etc/apt/sources.list

 sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list  

and comment or remove lines that include cdrom. eg:

deb cdrom:[Ubuntu-Server 16.04 LTS _Xenial Xerus_ - Release amd64 (20160420.3)]/ xenial main restricted
