I want to upgrade ROS Indigo Iglo with ROS-Industrial Indigo to a more recent version. Because ROS-Industrial Kinetic isn't there yet I have to use ROS Jade. I have Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS running.

But if I just use the Installation instruction provided by ROS I get the next error. What can I do about it?

user@ur5:~$ sudo apt-get install ros-jade-desktop-full

What do I have to do to install the latest working version of ROS, Ros-Industrial and gazebo (and the rest)?

Btw: Indigo and Jade can be installed side-by-side on Ubuntu Trusty.

so I already heard, but it seems that then there will be a issue with the different versions of Gazebo. But if that works, how do I install the ROS Jade?

Yeah, Gazebo is going to complicate matters.

Thats why I want to upgrade and not run them side-by-side.

Well, then remove all ros-indigo-* packages (or at leas the Gazebo ones), and install the Jade packages.

I need to migrate from Indigo to Jade, did you find instructions somewhere?
