i tried the 64 and 32 Bit Version of Ubuntu 15.10 (Ubuntu-Gnome). In both cases my freshly installed Ubuntu can not find any ros-jade package:

$ sudo apt-get install ros-jade-ros-base
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package ros-jade-ros-base

But it is in the sources list:

# cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list 
deb wily main

and I did an apt-get update more than once (there wasn't any error). Some more info about the system:

# uname -a
Linux user 4.2.0-16-generic #19-Ubuntu SMP Thu Oct 8 14:46:51 UTC 2015 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux

Sorry to bear bad news, but according to the wiki: ROS Jade ONLY supports Trusty (14.04), Utopic (14.10) and Vivid (15.04) for debian packages.

If you want to install ROS on Ubuntu 15.10 you might try a source installation but it is not guaranteed that it will work.

Thank you for your answer. I thought the packages were available because there is a folder for it in the dists directory:
