I installed ROS on Windows 10 using the tutorials here and here.

The installation completed successfully and I can run roscore and see the roscore topics via "rostopic list"

Now, I need to install a specific package: ros-melodic-octomap On another machine with Linux (Ubuntu 18.04) I was able to install this package with

sudo apt-get install ros-melodic-octomap

But with Windows 10, when I try to install this package I'm getting an error message (see below)

choco upgrade ros-melodic-octomap -y --execution-timeout=0
Chocolatey v0.10.15
Upgrading the following packages:

I'm sure @Sean Yen will respond here with a more complete answer, but the error message essentially tells you that octomaphasn't been released for ROSonWindows through Chocolately. can't be found for some reason.

Which seems strange, as roswin.azurewebsites.net/packages/octomap does seem to suggest it's been released/ported.
