ROS Indigo on Debian Jessie - Repositories Issue

I have just installed ROS Indigo on Debian Jessie. Everything worked just fine and installation was successfully.

But, the problem comes when I try to install any ROS package, e.g.: ros-indigo-ros-tutorials. The package is not found. There seems to be a problem with ROS Repositories but I can't figure out what.

So, I have the following repos: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list

deb jessie main

And in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/backports.list

deb jessie-backports main

Is there something wrong in this configuration?

And the output of sudo apt-get update | grep "" seems ok:

Hit jessie InRelease
Hit jessie/main amd64 Packages
Ign jessie/main Translation-en_US
Ign jessie/main Translation-en

Do I miss something or what?

I'm confused: your apt-get update output mentions amd64, but afaik there is no build of ROS Indigo for Debian Jessie (or at least not by the OSRF) for amd64, only for arm. Kinetic has Jessie builds for amd64 and ARMv8.

Could you please check? Which platform are you installing on?

Actually it is correct. My processor is amd64. I followed this tutorial: and it was installed successfully.

That tutorial refers to Debian Wheezy, not Jessie? And REP-3 also does not list Jessie as a platform for Indigo. Finally, seems to have pkgs for Ubuntu only.

Yes, that is the tutorial and I was thinking that it may works under Jessie too. I mean all the steps were working like in tutorial. But I can see now that it was a bad decision...
