The sources.list entry is for a cdrom that does not exist: the install
method was via a USB stick. That certainly seems like a bug to me (and
one that I've hit before myself: but I have not checked whether it is
already reported.)

Even if the OP left the install USB plugged into their machine, the
sources.list line would never work.
