I think that you have to fill your /etc/apt/sources.list with
repositories, and to use that, and you will be able to update the
software you already have installed, or install new sw. And after that
you can comment the line of the cd in sources.list
A howto of apt-get (sources.list):
"Meine Hoffnung soll mich leiten
Durch die Tage ohne Dich
Und die Liebe soll mich tragen
Wenn der Schmerz die Hoffnung bricht"
