"testcd" is not the same as "testdvd".
(Copy+paste error or the cause of your problem ?)

Now findmnt returns

I had tried "umount /media/richard/Debian 9.1.0 i386 1", but umount objected to the spaces in the file name.

Synaptic still returns

Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

Is the problem that the dvd is automounted at boot?
Thank you
