I try to install Ros kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04 with the next step:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://ha.pool.sks-keyservers.net:80 --recv-key 0xB01FA116
sudo apt-get update

But when I introuce the last step:

sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-desktop-full 

I received the next:

E: unable to locate package ros-indigo-desktop-full

Some idea?

Thank you very much and regards! Andres.

Well, the OP is a bit confusing: the command is to install Kinetic, but the error message mentions Indigo.
