Dolphin file manager in Kubuntu (Tested this in Kubuntu 21.04) does not ship with Mount ISO option in the right click menu, but with the help of the dolphin-plugins package we can add this and many other features.

In order to get this working we need to install this package.

Enter the command in Konsole to install the package.

sudo apt install dolphin-plugins

Here is a little information below about the package (run apt info dolphin-plugins to see this info in a Konsole window).
