I am trying to install
ros-desktop on Ubuntu16.04, ARM. However, my plan is to first download the .deb packages recursively using
apt-get download and
apt-rdepends as shown here and later install using
dpkg ignoring some of the dependencies I don't want. (
apt-get install won't let me ignore these dependencies, so I resorted to this method). But I encounter errors while downloading the package
E: Can't select candidate version from package xxx as it has no candidate
and many more such lines. Can you please suggest a work around for this.
Important Note: If the suggestion is
apt-get update, I cannot perform it as some of the updated packages are not compatible and will crash my installed drivers. Besides this, is there a way I can successfully download and install manually?
FYI: the dependencies I am ignoring are mesa because I already have own libraries for implementation of opengl and I don't want these additional mesa packages to interfere. Thanks in advance.
