I am using Ubuntu Mate 16.04 on Raspberry Pi 2. And ROS kinetic base is installed on it, every other package installs easily but I am unable to resolve the issue while installing rtabmap-ros. I have tried using ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS image for ARM and installed a Lubuntu desktop on it but the error is still present.

Maybe the package just is not released?

Binaries for arm are not built because libpcl-dev was not found on the initial release of Kinetic: , so rtabmap build is disabled on arm (don't remember where exactly on the buildfarm it is set).We may check to re-enable if libpcl-dev is now released. For now, you may have to build rtabmap from source:

Build status:

EDIT: It looks like pcl_ros package is not built either:
