I was trying to install the rtabmap_ros package in the ros kinetic. but I have got the "404 not found [IP:]" error. so I tried to install any other ros packages and I found that I can't install any ros package and get the same error. also when I run "apt-get update" actually the ros repositories do not update.

I usually use a VPN, so I tried it with the VPN off, but it did not solve it. also, running below command from ros kinetic installation guide but it also did not work for me.

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver 'hkp://' --recv-key C1CF6E31E6BADE8868B172B4F42ED6FBAB17C654

in /etc/apt/sources.list.d file i have two files for ros. ros-latest.list and these files contain same context as below:

deb xenial main
deb-src xenial main

i searched through my "source.list" file to find anything about ros but there was nothing relevant to ros in there.

my full error in installation of rtabmap_ros is like below:

Do you perhaps have a proxy configured on your system?

Can you install any package with apt? Not just ROS packages, but any Ubuntu package?

Have you run sudo apt update recently?

apt is trying to download packages from March (20190320) for some reason.

If that doens't solve this, could you check #q325039?

What helped exactly? sudo apt update? Or #q325039?
