HI,

I got this error when i wanted to install tortlebot:

sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-turtlebot ros-indigo-turtlebot-apps ros-indigo-turtlebot-interactions ros-indigo-turtlebot-simulator ros-indigo-kobuki-ftdi ros-indigo-rocon-remocon ros-indigo-rocon-qt-library ros-indigo-ar-track-alvar-msgs

E: Unable to locate package ros-indigo-rocon-remocon
E: Unable to locate package ros-indigo-rocon-qt-library
E: Unable to locate package ros-indigo-ar-track-alvar-msgs

I checked my ROS installation and everything looks fine. However I'm not sure why am getting this error? Also another thing might cause the issue might related to the rosdep update. When i tried to update my rosdep, again

it gives these warning:
Skip end-of-life distro "ardent"
Skip end-of-life distro "bouncy"
Skip end-of-life distro "crystal"
Add distro "dashing"
Add distro "eloquent"
Add distro "foxy"
Skip end-of-life distro "groovy"
Skip end-of-life distro "hydro"
Skip end-of-life distro "indigo"
Skip end-of-life distro "jade"
Add distro "kinetic"
Skip end-of-life distro "lunar"
Add distro "melodic"

As you can see it scaped updating and installing several other packages. Maybe this caused the issue?

What OS are you trying to install ROS indigo? ROS Indigo ONLY supports Saucy (13.10) and Trusty (14.04) for debian packages.

Also, Indigo has reached end-of-life and is not actively supported any more: http://wiki.ros.org/Distributions

Currently the recommended distribution is Noetic, but judging by the output of your rosdep, you must be on Ubuntu 16.04. You should replace ros-indigo for ros-kinetic on all the package names of the sudo apt-get install command

Thanks for your reply. I'm using Ubuntu 16.4 LTS. Ok. I'll check it
