Revision history [back]

The three latest ROS distributions nowadays (28.02.2017) are Indigo, Jade and Kinetic.

  • According to this, ROS Indigo precompiled binaries are available only on Saucy (13.10) and Trusty (14.04).

  • According to this, ROS Jade precompiled binaries are available only on Trusty (14.04), Utopic (14.10) and Vivid (15.04).

  • According to this, ROS Kinetic precompiled binaries are available only on Wily (Ubuntu 15.10), Xenial (Ubuntu 16.04) and Jessie (Debian 8).

So, no 16.10 is on the list (sorry). However you could try to compile from source (indigo instructions here, kinetic instructions here. This however I wouldn't recommend unless you have some expertise using ROS.

The easiest thing to do would be to format your PC with 14.04 for indigo or 16.04 for kinetic, both are LTS versions being ROS Kinetic the recommended one by ROS (see this).

I hope this helps,
