but when I try to install the Full Desktop version I get this error. I don't know what to do.

Processing triggers for libc-bin (2.24-9ubuntu2.2) ...
Errors were encountered while processing:

It looks like there was an error while installing packages, but I don't see the actual error in your question. Can you edit your question to include the full error message?

thanks for responding. yes, there were in fact package errors. So, I basically rebooted my machine and started the whole process over from the beginning and then it worked. So, I have no idea what caused the problem, but it seems to have fixed itself. that just sounds wrong..... but it worked

You could try to use one of the available mirrors: http://wiki.ros.org/ROS/Installation/...

(I have been experiencing - from the EU - several issues with aborted downloads from the main site today, which went away as soon as I switched to a European mirror.)

I hope this helps!
