Can't install ROS on Raspberry Pi 3

I'm following this tutorial on how to install ROS on an ARM device.

Part of the problem is that Ubuntu 14.04 is not an install option for Raspberry Pi 3. What they support is Ubuntu MATE (15.04). Any ideas of how to get around this?

The error:

$ sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-ros-base

The following information may help to resolve the situation:
