Hi, I'm trying to install ROS kinetic in a chroot, on a Ubuntu 19.04 system. And am following the steps provided in the link

while I'm trying to attempt the below command

rosdep install --from-path src --rosdistro kinetic -i -y

I'm getting the following error

  E: Unable to locate package ros-kinetic-message-runtime
  ERROR: the following rosdeps failed to install
  apt: command [sudo -H apt-get install -y ros-kinetic-message-runtime] failed

and when I execute the next source step,(source /opt/ros/kinetic/setup.bash), there's no directory in that name.

If you are attempting to install Kinetic, why do you run:

rosdep install --from-path src --rosdistro indigo -i -y

note the indigo there?

Sorry, my bad I ran kinetic instead of indigo, I mentioned it wrongly in the question
