This is a misperception. Linux rules the data center, not the desktop. Therefore the vast bulk of Linux installs are not done this way. Instead, entirely by network. I haven't heard anyone else complain about the mount message I don't believe.

Now I think that the specific volume information displayed is just the text in sources.list. So perhaps you could replace it with your desired text.

I was going to document here the work-a-round I successfully used
yesterday to install desired additional packages.

Before doing so, I attempted to duplicate the steps performed yesterday.
I received a strange error message. I suspect I know the source of the
problem(s). It will take at least a day to document.
