I have followed the instructions at word by word and

sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-desktop-full

has failed on my Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with the error message in the subject of my query above. Anyone know what could be the problem?

the keyserver succeeded and yes, I can ping sites on web so connected, and non of -desktop or -ros-base succeeded either, giving the same "not found" message

What is the output of:

  • uname -a
  • cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list
  • lsb_release -a
  • sudo apt update
  • apt-cache search ros-kinetic-ros-base

Please edit your original question to append this information.
