I am currently trying to install ROS Kinetic on my Linux Mint 18 running laptop. As far as I am aware of, Sarah 18 is based on Linux kernel 4.4 and an Ubuntu 16.04 package base. Following the wiki installation manual, I am running into the following errors (when calling apt-get update):

Err:11 kinetic/main amd64 Packages
  404  Not Found [IP: 80]
Ign:12 kinetic/main i386 Packages
Ign:13 kinetic/main all Packages
Ign:14 kinetic/main Translation-en_US
Ign:15 kinetic/main Translation-en
Fetched 190 kB in 5s (33,2 kB/s)
Reading package lists... Done
W: The repository ' kinetic Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
E: Failed to fetch  404  Not Found [IP: 80]
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Is this problem related to the fact that I am not using Ubuntu? Are there any methods of installing ROS on Linux Mint Sarah 18?

It's a problem with the auto-genned source

This comment helped me resolve the same error I experienced when calling 'apt-get update' on the Raspberry Pi 3. Thank You
