I did look at the man.
Once you stop being amused from my sarcasm you might notice the subtle difference between what i suggested and what you - by your own admission - executed. I am not sure but what you posted suggests that you might have looked at the wrong man page.

Anyhow, since you were busy making fun of my obviously lacking intellectual capacity i took the time to look up the man page myself. So, along with a big apology for not being fluent in mind reading, here is what i found, the relevant parts are marked bold by me:

# man apt-cdrom
       apt-cdrom [-rmfan] [-d=cdrom_mount_point] [-o=config_string]
                 [-c=config_file] {add | ident | {-v | --version} |
                 {-h | --help}}
       apt-cdrom is used to add a new CD-ROM to APT's list of available
       sources.  apt-cdrom takes care of determining the structure of the disc
       as well as correcting for several possible mis-burns and verifying the
       index files.
           add is used to add a new disc to the source list. It will unmount
           the CD-ROM device, prompt for a disc to be inserted and then
           proceed to scan it and copy the index files.
       -d, --cdrom
           Mount point; specify the location to mount the CD-ROM. This mount
           point must be listed in /etc/fstab and properly configured.
       -m, --no-mount
           No mounting; prevent apt-cdrom from mounting and unmounting the
           mount point.

So, since i suppose you don't want to mount/unmount the pen drive (you see, i am getting better at reading minds) you mount the pen drive at /some/where, then issue

# apt-cdrom -m -d=/some/where add

and you are done.

I hope this helps.

Linux and UNIX

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel. The Linux kernel is an operating system kernel first released by Linus Torvalds on 17 September 1991. Linux distributions include the Linux kernel, system software and libraries. Popular free open source Linux distributions include Debian, Fedora, and Ubuntu. Commercial Linux distributions include Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. Linux may be freely modified and redistributed. Anyone on the planet may create a Linux distribution for any purpose.
Unix (trademarked as the UNIX certification mark) is a very mature family of multitasking, multiuser computer operating systems that evolved from the original AT&T Unix. Unix development starting in the 1970s by legendary Bell Labs programmers Ken Thompson, Dennis Ritchie, and others. Unix was first targeted for the Bell System and AT&T licensed Unix to outside parties. In the 1970s time period, this lead to a variety of for-profit as well as not-for-profit Unix variants.
In the early days, this included the University of California, Berkeley (BSD), Microsoft (Xenix), IBM (AIX), and Sun Microsystems (Solaris). In the early 1990s, AT&T sold their Unix rights to Novell. In 1995 Novell sold their Unix business to the Santa Cruz Operation (SCO). The UNIX trademark was passed to The Open Group, a "neutral" industry consortium. The Open Group promoted the use of the UNIX trademark for certified operating systems that comply with the Single UNIX Specification (SUS). In 2014 Apple's macOS became the Unix version with the largest global install base and macOS remains the largest Unix-user base today.
