When I install gazebo using sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-gazebo-ros, I get this error:

E: Unable to locate package ros-indigo-gazebo-ros

Why ? Can't the gazebo be installed on jetson tk1? Or I have got to install from source?

Jetson TK1 has an ARM processor (armhf architecture) and ros-indigo-gazebo-ros is only available for i386 and amd64 architectures.

You could try to compile from source, but it is going to be difficult because probably gazebo's dependencies will not be available for ARM either. Besides, even if you could manage to compile gazebo in a Jetson TK1 it would run excruciatingly slow.
