I try to follow this tutorial to install pr2 package: My machine is Ubuntu 14.04 64bit (in Vmware) ROS is indigo

But I get this error:

hadoop@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-pr2-desktop
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package ros-indigo-pr2-desktop

Any idea about this?

Have you setup your sources properly? Section 1.2 on the webpage you linked.

Thank you for your response. Yes. I did 1.2 and 1.3 and 1.4 (sudo apt-get update) This seems very simple. Why I still get the error? I have been working on this for a whole day...

As far as I can tell from status_page/ros_indigo_default.html?q=pr2_desktop, the pr2_desktop package has not been released into Indigo, which is why sudo apt-get .. is failing.

You might want to inquire about the status on the pr2_metapackages issue tracker.

+1 to this answer. Metapackages are no longer built but the child packages are so you can install the dependencies yourself or get someone to bundle them.
