I receive an error message:
The repository 'file:/home/richard/dvd.iso stretch Release'

What is the problem?
I'm going to get in trouble for this but if I could offer advice.
You seem more interested in the actual install process than getting it
running and doing something with it.
Fair enough, it is like a hobby,
When came across this stuff I was the same, installed whatever
distribution on awkward hardware just to see.
But I had no idea what I was doing.
There is so much to know and if you have a memory like a sieve like me
it is really hard to grasp how it all works.
These days I accept the default installation and that which is needed to
do bits of image manipulation and I really like having the email and
webserver software and that's it.
