I have been trying to install turtlebot2 on Ubuntu 20.04 and i could not figure out with ROS i can use Noetic, kinetic, Melodic or indigo so i am so confused. I know Noetic can work with Ubuntu 20.04 but can we install turtlebot2 by using it????

This page indicates to me that you should use kinetic & ubuntu 16. If you are new to ros, it's a bad idea to try to port software that you're unfamiliar with.

It's possible to install Turtlebot2 in ROS Kinetic but it will take a bit of work on your end. In this repo, I showed some examples how to go through this process with other robots:

But essentially you need to build from source, make sure everything compiles properly. Next challenge would be to make the simulation part work.

There is an example on how to make it work with ROS Melodic, take a look, it may work or without too much work. Good luck, if you are successful, please make sure to share as others will benefit.
