If you mean: are there binaries provided I could use, then: no.

There is a (perhaps slim, but still) chance that you could get the things that you need to build from sources on 16.04, but there are no guarantees.

What exactly do you think you need Groovy for? Building individual packages from source -- even on newer OS / ROS versions -- is way easier than trying to build an entire ROS release.

Thank you for the reply gvdhoorn, I actually need it for running an old project for testing but it seems groovy is not compatible with the latest version of Ubuntu.

P.S: I am still a beginner in this.
