Hi I'm just starting out with ROS. i'm unable to install the ros tutorials in this this link navigating the file system.

When I type his command :

sudo apt-get install ros-<kinetic>-ros-tutorials

I get this result:

bash: kinetic: No such file or directory

Please what can I do?

Are you literally running

sudo apt-get install ros-<kinetic>-ros-tutorials

? If you are, please remove the < and the >, i.e.,

sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-ros-tutorials

the entire <distro> part (including angle brackets) is meant to be replaced by the distribution that you're using.

Can you please create a new question for the error from your comment? It's not related to this issue.

I tried to find this solution for one day! Can ROS team add somethings to tutorial about "<>" signs?

I thought the tutorial was already quite clear, but I've updated it to add (including the '<>')
