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.
P.S. It works fine on a already installed ROS Kinect system, but if you try a new install it fails.
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
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. 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.
hmm… As far as I experienced with my Ubuntu 18.04 installation on my 8th gen NUC (with multi OS : 16.04, 20.04), it didn’t ask for any password, and installed as I did like 20.04.
I believe I downloaded the AMD64 desktop image from the page below.
I guess 16.04’s EOL is past due anyhow, but it’s EOL was not user friendly, just saying.
Right, EOL is a necessary evil to redistribute maintenance resources to support another version that succeeds.
