Ubuntu 16.04.2 Xenial Xerus images Released for VirtualBox and VMware

Ubuntu team announced the updated version of their operating system Ubuntu 16.04.2 Xenial Xerus. “The Ubuntu team is pleased to announce the release of Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS for its Desktop, Server and Cloud products, as well as other flavours of Ubuntu with long-term support. Like previous LTS series’, 16.04.2 includes hardware enablement stacks for use on newer hardware. This support is offered on all architectures except for 32-bit powerpc, and is installed by default when using one of the desktop images. Ubuntu Server defaults to installing the GA kernel, however you may select the HWE kernel from the installer bootloader. As usual, this point release includes many updates, and updated installation media has been provided so that fewer updates will need to be downloaded after installation. These include security updates and corrections for other high-impact bugs, with a focus on maintaining stability and compatibility with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.” You can check release announcement on their mailing list.

    This worked well, until I started to try to add packages. The OS wanted me to insert an original DVD of the OS distro in order to add packages. Given that I don’t have one of those DVDs, I am pretty stuck. Is this a common newbie issue? Can someone tell me the secret?
