I am trying to install ROS universal robots using this command - "sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-universal-robots". But it shows an error saying: Unable to locate package ros-kinetic-universal-robots. How can I install it then?

My Ubuntu version is: Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS.

Your help will be much appreciated. Thank you.

Isn't this a duplicate of your own #q372351?

First of all, you are trying to install a package from ROS kinetic, which is released for Ubuntu 16.04.

On Ubuntu 20.04 the official ROS release would be noetic. However, the universal_robots package is not released for ROS noetic, yet.

There have been (I think successful) attempts to build it from source using the melodic-devel-staging branch of the package. See this issue for details.
