Ubuntu_updates for ROS

Is it me or is the main server for Ubuntu down for all or just ROS kinect?

Hmmm… I don’t see any issues in the status history.
Are you still experiencing an issue with Ubuntu 16.04 + Kinetic?

Yes. It is so odd I can not get a update for Ubuntu ROS Kinect from the U.S. server or any server. I’ll re-install and put it away as a archive because everything was working on the kinect Distro. All the others have issues, “not as much working even this late in the game.” I only see ROS Noetic with all the simulator and slam packages working. I could be wrong I have been before. On a Happy note, what is new this YEAR from the folks at ROBOTIS? I can not say enough good things about you all so I shall stop now. :hugs:
P.S. It works fine on a already installed ROS Kinect system, but if you try a new install it fails. :grimacing:

That’s weird.
I’ll try to reinstall Ubuntu 16.04 + Kinetic on my NUC and see if there’s any issue during installation process.
We’re expecting a lot of changes and updates in this year which will keep us busy, but hopefully we can provide more solutions for developers :slight_smile:
Always appreciate your support and feedback!
Happy New Year and stay safe.

Even more odd is ubuntu 18.04 asks for a secure boot password for a intel NCU and installs just fine.
On a PC desktop/Office computer not a NCU it just wont work.? Something to do with UEFI security and this particular Distro as far as I can tell. I normally stay clear of BIOS settings, but now seems to be a good time I guess. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: I hope the word depreciated don’t destroy the whole idea of open source. Maybe Red Hat is still around. Just saying Ubuntu is looking like a dead end road with depreciated at the end of it.
