I try to install Ros kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04 with the next step:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb $(lsb_release -sc) main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv-key 0xB01FA116
sudo apt-get update

But when I introuce the last step:

sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-desktop-full

I received the next:

E: unable to locate package ros-indigo-desktop-full

Some idea?

Thank you very much and regards! Andres.

Well, the OP is a bit confusing: the command is to install Kinetic, but the error message mentions Indigo.

I was having the same issue. What I did was go back and installed kinetic from source.

I did run in to an issue when I was resolving the dependencies. I am installing this on a RaspberryPi, so it is taking a long time. So when I started resolving dependencies, I sat there for awhile, but decided to go to bed on item number 30 of 194 (opencv3). When I woke up in the morning, I had an error that would have occurred shortly after I left the Pi. I believe it is because I let the Pi go to sleep in the middle of this step. I am not super familiar with linux, so I am not 100% sure this is the cause of the error because I haven't had a chance to retry, but I would bet, that is what caused the problem.

Try installing from source, and let me know if it works for you.

Best, Tim
