In the tf2 tutorial the following line is incorrect:

sudo apt-get install ros-$ROS_DISTRO-turtle-tf2 ros-$ROS_DISTRO-turtle-tf2-tools ros-$ROS_DISTRO-tf

because ros-lunar-turtle-tf2-tools doesn't exist, but ros-lunar-tf2-tools does. Just a naming error. So it should be:

sudo apt-get install ros-$ROS_DISTRO-turtle-tf2 ros-$ROS_DISTRO-tf2-tools ros-$ROS_DISTRO-tf

That does look like a typo. Can you link to the tutorial you're referring to? There isn't an 'rviz' tutorial

Yep sorry, it's the first tf2 tutorial
