I now get a different error message:

How about adding "/pool" to the URI ?

   deb file:///home/richard/dvdmount/pool stretch main contrib

because i see in a mounted 9.4.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso


(The man page and wiki are remarkably diffuse about "file:".)

Error message now:
The repository 'file:/home/richard/dvdmount/pool stretch Release'
does not have a Release file.

I've been using Synaptic primarily for current convenience.
Would I be better off using one of the apt family of command line tools?
