I followed the instructions at but get the error "Unable to locate package ros-melodic-desktop-full" when trying to install. I then tried "apt-cache search ros-melodic" at the command line which came back empty (just the command prompt).

Platform: Raspberry PI Model 3B with Raspbian Stretch (release 9.6)

Could you check whether #q301220 answers your question? The Pi has a 64bit processor, but it's almost always run with a 32bit OS. That means there are no binary packages for it unless you run Ubuntu (ubhf). See #q301220 for an explanation.

Will try with Ubuntu. Thank you.
