I checked the packages list for kinetic and it does have geographic_msgs listed so it should not be giving this error

I installed ROS on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS following the steps here. The command I used :

sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-geographic-msgs

I'm running ROS 1.12.6, also I've been using my Velodyne VLP-16 to bag the data and display the data in rviz but I'm having problems getting this package.

How did you install ROS? Which OS is this? What platform / architecture? Please copy-paste the exact commands you used that resulted in the output you posted.

You can also use this line to install the required message type.
