Hi, everyone. I have Turtlebot3 and raspberry pi 3 B+ with Raspbian. I'm trying to install some packages with sudo apt-get install but it gives me an error. I searched all over the internet but couldn't find anything usefull. Pls help me. The command I entered below ↓↓↓

$ sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-image-transport ros-kinetic-cv-bridge ros-kinetic-vision-opencv python-opencv libopencv-dev ros-kinetic-image-proc

The response of the computer ↓↓↓

Seeing as you mention Raspbian: if you installed ROS by building it from source (ie: with catkin_make or catkin_make_isolated), then you cannot use apt to install additional packages. You'll have to build all your ROS packages from source.
