Hydro has been EOL for almost 5 years now.

As Hydro is no longer supported, I would strongly recommend you upgrade to 18.04 with ROS Melodic which is very actively supported.

edit: or 16.04 with Kinetic

+1 for answering a question @mlautman, but this particular one was posted in 2014 ;) Hydro was certainly not EOL at that point.

Oops, should have sorted by date before going through these.
