I am having trouble in installing gazebo from ""packages.osrfoundation.org"

Can you describe the problem?

it is written "do not use the osrfoundation repository.".

That wording it a bit too dramatic, it should be you do not _need_ to use the osrfoundation repository.

So, what is the proper procedure to install Gazebo9 from "packages.ros.org" repository

I think the tutorial is a bit misleading there too. Gazebo itself is only available from packages.ros.org for a few platforms, which does not include Ubuntu Bionic 18.04.

I believe the tutorial may be mixing gazebo with gazebo_ros_pkgs. ROS Melodic gets gazebo9 from Ubuntu official packages, and gazebo_ros_pkgs from packages.ros.org.


To summarize: you shouldn't be having any problems using gazebo9 from packages.osrfoundation.org together with ros-melodic-gazebo-ros-pkgs from packages.ros.org.
