I cannot install python catkin pkg on my Ubuntu 20.04 with ros noetic installed. I keep getting this error. I have done the sourcing of setup.bash already.

Appreciate any help. Thanks.

Package python-catkin-pkg is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:

E: Package 'python-catkin-pkg' has no installation candidate
edit retag flag offensive close merge delete


However the following packages replace it: python3-catkin-pkg

It does tell you to what to do instead. Did you have issues installing python3-catkin-pkg?

Most everything newer has left Python 2.xx at this point.
