I don't see the message you're referring to, so I may be getting some of 
this out of context.

You can use an ISO directly if you're going to install to a virtual 
machine. Otherwise, I think you need some install media, like a CD, DVD 
or USB stick. You can't install a new operating system from a .deb file. 
There are also network installs, but I'm not sure if you can start these 
from a running operating system or not.

I defer to others with more knowledge and experience in this area.
