I got a kinect and I am trying to follow the documentation However, I get the following output.

$ roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch

[openni.launch] is neither a launch file in package [openni_launch] nor is [openni_launch] a launch file name

I am currently on Groovy. Should I update to Hydro? If yes, How? Or is it related to some other problem?

The OpenNI packages are available for Groovy. Try installing them with sudo apt-get install ros-groovy-openni-launch.
