you have to install ros-kinetic_gazebo-ros, ros-kinetic-gazebo-plugins, ros-kinetic-gazebo-dev before installing the packages you trying to install.

@Choco93: that is quite a statement. Dependency resolution should do this automatically for you, but for some reason that is not happening for @Jophiel. Doing this manually is at best a work-around.

@Jophiel: can you try to use aptitude instead of apt-get? It may give a better error message.

First uninstall the default Gazebo-

$ sudo apt-get remove ros-<ros_version>-gazebo*

$ sudo apt-get remove libgazebo*

$ sudo apt-get remove gazebo*

Update the repository-

$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://packages.osrfoundation.org/gaz... lsb_release -cs main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/gazebo-stable.list'

$ wget http://packages.osrfoundation.org/gaz... -O - | sudo apt-key add -

$ sudo apt-get update

Install Gazebo-

$ sudo apt-get install ros-melodic-gazebo-ros-pkgs ros- 'ROS_VERSION' -gazebo-ros-control

in my case- ROS_VERSION = melodic

$ sudo apt-get install ros-melodic-gazebo-ros-pkgs ros-melodic-gazebo-ros-control
