I suppose you still have the installation CD in your sources file. You 
could either insert the CD (not useful) or delete the entry from the 
file "/etc/apt/sources.list". To do so, use the command

kdesudo kate /etc/apt/sources.list

and remove the line that starts with "deb cdrom:" or put a # sign in 
front of the line.

Well, the error message was a bit misleading because you probably don't 
want to update from a cdrom but from the internet only. Therefore the 
suggested apt-cdrom command doesn't apply to you.
