Hello everyone!

I'm trying to get started with ROS, but can't even get through the installation tutorial ( http://wiki.ros.org/kinetic/Installat... ) When trying to install ros-kinetic-desktop-full I get the error:

Unable to locate package ros-kinetic-desktop-full

I checked the apt package repository at http://mirror-ap.packages.ros.org/ros... and sure enough, there are no kinetic packages. Repositories for other OS's seem to have the packages (albeit some of course have the ROS melodic packaged). I checked the mirrors as well, but none of them had the packages.

Were the packages removed?

Did you run 'sudo apt-get update' after setting up the apt sources and keys?

Yes, I followed the tutorial precisely and checked the apt cache if there are any packages from the ROS repository in it. ( There are, but only the ones from http://mirror-ap.packages.ros.org/ros... ) The kinetic packages are missing.

I switched to Ubuntu (xenial) and there it works without problems. And checking the repository, the packages are in the xenial repo, but not in the jessie repo. Is there a way to contact the repository maintainer about this?

Does #q239466 answer this?

Thanks for the hint, but no, I'm using amd64.
