Binary builds of Indigo are not available on Debian Jessie.

Debian Jessie builds are available for Kinetic by only on amd64 and armv8 which I believe does not overlap with the pi zero either.

So you'll likely need to build what you need from source.

As stated above, ROS doesn't have binary packages supporting the pi zero rn, so if you want to build mavros, you would have to build everything from source,
