I'm following instructions for installing some packages useful to me in a project I'm involved. But those instructions are made for ROS kinetik and Ubuntu16 and I have installed Ubuntu 20.04 so i have to use ROS Noetic.

I have resolved many problems but with some I haven't found a solution. One of this problems is that there isn't a equivalent of: ros-kinetik-mongodb-store in ROS Noetic.

Can anyone explain me where i'm doing wrong?

In order for a package to be available as a binary package, it has to be released into the corresponding ROS distribution.

In this case the package that you are looking for has not been released into noetic yet.

A good first step would be to ask the maintainers of that package to create a noeticrelease. You can file an issue on their tracker on Github:

There may be reasons that this release hasn't been done yet (lack of maintainer time, or changes between Ubuntu versions making the release non-trivial). In that case, it may take some time to get a release ready and available as a binary package.

In the meantime, you may consider building that package from source as part of your workspace. If you find that there are things that you need to fix in order to get it to work with noetic and focal, I'm sure that the maintainers would appreciate a pull request with those changes.
