mavros missing on kinetic?

I was using mavros on Indigo and cannot manage to install again on kinetic. The package does not show up in the list of ros-kinetic-* packages.

I additionally tried to install it manually, following the instructions on this page:

However, when replacing my distro from jade to kinetic in the following command line:

rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro jade -y

I get the following error: E: Unable to locate package ros-kinetic-control-toolbox

I could not find the package in the list of ros-kinetic-* packages and I made sure to update my system and upgrade it. Has anyone managed to install mavros on kinetic?

It seems at least the packages in this page are already build and their binaries are available already on Kinetic. Have you run apt-get update?

Also, Jade and Kinetic are not meant to work on the same Ubuntu distro. See REP-0003 for the supported hosts:

Thank you 130s for your answer. I found my mistake. I tried to install two distros of ROS to access older packages but did not readjust my sources.list and keys. After setting these for kinetic, I was able to access the package without problem.
