Ok, then try to umount, then mount - manually.

Above, is the umount, which was effective, since ls returned nothing. It
is unexpected (at least to me) that the mount command then gets the error
message.

And that's the real error: your system thinks it does not have a floppy.

You could look at the end of the /var/log/messages file right after the mount command, to see if the kernel says anything. Also, eject and put the floppy and look up the log again. Another place is to look in /var/log/boot.msg anything relative to the floppy.
