Hello, Following the tutorials I tried to download the the ros tutorials for melodic with the following command:

sudo apt-get install ros-melodic-ros-tutorials

but I end up with the following result:

E: Unable to locate package ros-melodic-ros-tutorials

Are the melodic tutorials haven't been released yet? or I'm missing a package?

Thanks Regards

Can you install other Melodic packages?

What is the output of uname -mvpi and lsb_release -c?
