See Calin Dragos-George's comment (emphasis mine) on this tutorial for installing ROS on Raspberry Pi 3B+

Hello Arvin, Thank you for your comment. Pi 3B+ is compatible with Mate 18.04. ROS Melodic is the only one ROS version compatible with Mate 18.04. Considering the above, you can run on Pi 3B+ only this combination: Mate 18.04 and Melodic. In my opinion the performance is in the best case like ROS Kinetic + Mate 16.04 running on Pi 3B.


Thank you for your comment. If you’re trying to install ROS on Pi 3B+, you have only one option: ROS Melodic.

I do not think you can install Kinetic on your platform. Try to install Melodic instead :)
