I try to install the turtlebot-simulator stack to be able to use the turtlebot_gazebo package. I am running Ubuntu with ros kinetic therefore my install command ist: sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-turtlebot-simulator However the installation attempt fails due to unmet dependencies of every package within that stack (gazebo, stage, stdr). If I try to install a depdency package manually it of course also fails with the same problem.

My google research hasn't been successful. I tried installing with rosdep however that didn't work either. I guess this is an issue of me not understanding package management in ros properly. I have read that I could install this package to my catkin workspace however I would rather have it install to my "ros" to have access from different workspaces.

If possible it would be awesome to tell me why exactly sudo apt-get fails to get the dependencies itself (which usually pretty much always has been the case for me) and how the expected workflow is to resolve this. As you can probably tell my Linux skills are okaish but limited when it comes to such details and I'd really like to understand what is going on here!

Thanks in advance!
