"Type" is probably referring to the deb or deb-src entry that is missing.
Have you already used the repository to update your sources? why do you
want to add the cd/dvd back?
I have found that immediately after install, a commented line
in sources.list resembling:
#deb cdrom:[debian_installer_version_arch_24-date_etc] stretch main
and if I uncomment this line, and mount the install media at /media/cdrom
then apt is able to continue installing pkgs from it.
If that won;t work for you, try apt-cdrom
