I am trying to use Arduino with ROS and want to follow these tutorial. In particular, I am using this method to interface with Arduino. However, I am seeing this problem,

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package ros-kinect-rosserial-arduino

Please, tell me what should I do and where I am making a mistake. I am using Arduino DUE. Thank you.

ROS K is named Kinetic, so the proper installation command should be:

sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-rosserial-arduino

Moreover, rosserial-arduino has not yet been released to ROS kinetic.

Mmmmm Yes. I guess that's the problem.

I think it is now supported via apt-get I installed it this way earlier this week, which is something I couldn't do the week before hand.
