I'm installing ROS Noetic in Ubuntu 22.10 with the steps in follow the instruction in

However, there is an error showing "Unable to locate package ros-noetic-desktop-full" when I type in the command "sudo apt install ros-noetic-desktop-full". Does ROS Noetic support Ubuntu 22.10? If not, what version of ROS should I install? (since I'm a beginner and ROS2 is too complicated for me) If not, should I reinstall older version of Ubuntu so that I ca install ROS Noetic easier?

Thank you.

According to this page, ROS Noetic can be installed on Ubuntu 20.04. Reinstall Ubuntu (ver. 20.04 and not 22.10). Then it should be able to locate the package ros-noetic-desktop-full in the official repository of Ubuntu

UPDATE: It is right, 20.04 is the right version. I typed 22.04. Noetic is for 20.04

There is no supported ROS Noetic for Ubuntu 22.04. Only 20.04 is supported. The page you link states this:

These instructions will install ROS Noetic Ninjemys, which is available for Ubuntu Focal (20.04), [..]

You could consider using the wiki/UpstreamPackages, or something like Docker, Singularity (Apptainer) or perhaps conda with Robostack.
