"many errors" is not descriptive enough for someone to be able to help you very much. If you have a specific error, I'd suggest posting a new question. Good luck!

try with sudo? as in $sudo source /opt/ros/kinetic/setup.bash

Shouldn't need to use sudo to source a file like this. OP has a currently-unidentified issue, and randomly throwing sudo at it is likely not a very good idea.
