Hi, I am using ubuntu 16LTS and I am trying to download fetchbot for ros-kinetic using

sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-fetch*

but I get the following error

brolin@brolin:~/ROS_BOOK/fetchbot$ sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-fetch*
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package ros-kinetic-fetch*
E: Couldn't find any package by glob 'ros-kinetic-fetch*'
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'ros-kinetic-fetch*'

The question has been previously asked by roy (#q270581).

Is there anyway i can get fetchbot for kinetic? Is there any github repository available to download fetchbot for kinetic?

The situation I described in my answer to #q270581 doesn't seem to have changed: there is no release of the Fetch Robotics packages in Kinetic. So the command you run is not going to work.

Reading the latest comments on fetchrobotics/fetch_ros#56 it would appear a Kinetic release may never come.

Instead, Fetch Robotics appear to be focusing on a Melodic release (fetchrobotics/fetch_ros#63).

Finally, as also mentioned in #q270581, you should be able to build all Fetch Robotics packages from source on Ubuntu Xenial / ROS Kinetic in a Catkin workspace.
