I want to install the autoware in my ubuntu16.04, I have already installed ROS kinetic and QT5.12, then I followed the instructions below:

When I got to the step:

rosdep install -y --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro $ROS_DISTRO

I got a problem shows below:

E: Unable to locate package libboost-python-1.58.0
E: couldn't find any package by glob 'libboost-python-1.58.0'
E: couldn't find any package by regex 'libboost-python-1.58.0'
ERROR: the following rosdeps failed to install apt: command [sudo -H apt-get install -y libboost-python-1.58.0] failed

I tried many methods, including change sources.list, but nothing worked.

Apologies, there is a typo in the rosdep rule for Ubuntu Xenial, this PR should fix it

Once it is merged you should be able to just run rosdep update and try again.

In the meantime, you can install the package by hand and tell rosdep to ignore that key:

sudo apt update && sudo apt install -y libboost-python1.58.0
rosdep install -y --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro $ROS_DISTRO --skip-keys libboost-python

One possible reason for this error is that the current release of Autoware.AI only supports Ubuntu 18.04 (as shown in the chart on the page to which you linked).
