I am trying to install or update software for Ubuntu server 12.04 LTS. I get this error:

W: Failed to fetch 

and other such lines. Another user posted that this might be a problem if the CD is still referenced as a package. How do I remove the CD from the command line on a server?

Thank you. Mike M
