When I check for the ros-latest.list, I get the following output:

As mentioned in step 1.2 of the page you linked

Setup your computer to accept software from . ROS Indigo ONLY supports Saucy (13.10) and Trusty (14.04) for debian packages.

That means if you are using 15.04, you will need to build ROS from source.

I think I am going to give up and install 14.04.2 which is supported.
