The line left by the installer usually looks something like:
deb cdrom:[Name of CD/DVD - The word Official and the Date]/ buster main
and if you mount either the usb or the .iso to /media/cdrom then apt can
find it and you can continue installing pkgs from it after first boot.
Haven't people warned you that apt or apt-get is preferred over synaptic?
Do it the easy way.
