Cannot update software in a live environment due to CD-ROM being selected as a source of updates

Bug Description

This bug only affects Ubuntu as far as I can tell.

When running in a live environment I cannot update software as the CD ROM option in software sources is selected. Un-checking the CD-ROM option allows the update to complete.

I'm marking my own bug as 'invalid' as it probably should have been raised against apt and in any case has been fixed (in version I have not seen this bug in many of the nine live image tests that I have done so far for Utopic final.

Changed in update-manager (Ubuntu):
