It is ignoring my changes to the repository.

Which makes sense, as sylvia is not an Ubuntu release code name, and the ROS buildfarm does not build packages for it (or at least: it doesn't store any release file for it).

Reading package lists... Done
W: The repository 'http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu sylvia Release' does not have a Release file.

This error also tells you that.

Linux Mint is essentially Ubuntu but the interface is different. Does anyone know how to do that?

Provided sylvia is compatible with one of Ubuntu's distributions (I haven't checked), you can try to see whether setting ROS_OS_OVERRIDE (docs) to a suitable value works. Be sure to also update your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list to use the same value(s).

Finally: how to install ROS Ubuntu packages on Ubuntu derivatives has been asked a few times before. A search (with Google: site:answers.ros.org <your search terms>) should lead you to some usable information.


Edit: looks like sylvia is essentially Ubuntu Xenial. A value for ROS_OS_OVERRIDE could be: ubuntu:16.04.

Hello, this post talks about the same problem:

https://answers.ros.org/question/2453...

There problems is, when you add the Ros repository, you need to change the name of the release to Ubuntu's release name, in this case Xenial. So, instead of use

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'

You should change for

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu xenial main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'

Because, otherwise, the repository uses the Mint distribution name, and there isn't.

Yes, this is also correct. Thank you. I should've been able to crack it myself. :-)
