I used apt-cdrom briefly a few weeks ago and noted that it appears to be
hardcoded to use /cdrom as a mountpoint.  There must be a /cdrom
directory, and an /etc/fstab entry for the CD-ROM to mount on /cdrom.  I
didn't explore deeply but noted this at the time.  IMO it's a bug,
should probably be filed as such (or checked).
