I don't know about Synaptics, but for the command line you have
to put a file name in quotes whenever it contains spaces (this
is due to the shell separating arguments (by default) at whitespace:
umount sees four arguments then: "/media/richard/Debian", "9.1.0",
"i386" and "1". None of those are a mount point or device (lucky
you ;), thus umount complains).
