I'm sorry to be so persistent, but this would seem to be a duplicate of #q312581.

Can you please tell us which tutorials/documentation you've already found, and why they didn't work for you?

ROS installation instructions fi are found on the wiki.

I have been trying to download gazebo from this website but it just tells me that i have build errors due to missing SDF, missing Ignition. I'm stuck because i can't seems to get it to work despite re-downloading.

Why are you building from source?

How should i build?

you shouldn't, ever. Unless you have to. Always prefer binary packages if they are available.

Are you using an unsupported OS, version of ROS, or a combination of any of those?

If your answer is "no", then do not build from source.

There should be no need.

For ROS: follow the installation tutorial I've already linked you to.

To install Gazebo: if you install ros-kinetic-desktop-full, it will be automatically installed for you (although that would be version 7, and you may want to upgrade it -- at a later time).

Start with the basics.
