According to the wiki (here) ROS Kinetic is only supported on Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily) and 16.04 (Xenial)

The "easiest" way would be to reinstall Ubuntu 16.04 on your system and then install ROS according to the instructions.

Or you could try to compile it yourself according to this instructions here (never tried this myself)
