I need to run some code I received and it requires ROS Indigo ,however my machine is running Ubuntu 20.04. I have already installed ROS Noetic using the package manager on my machine and I would like to install Indigo as well. Can I install Indigo using the package manager or do I need to build it from source? I see from the install site that "ROS Indigo ONLY supports Saucy (13.10) and Trusty (14.04) for debian packages."

Correct, so you can't install it using the package manager. And shouldn't try to install it from source. Indigo is quite old and installing from source is always a hassle.

If the code really only runs on Indigo, it should be ported to Noetic.

Or try running it in a Docker container.
