gazebo7is an official package in Ubuntu Xenial 16.04. The tutorial says that it should be automatically installed when you need to install ROS packages. So a simple apt-get install ros-kinetic-desktop-full should just work.

If you want to get the latest gazebo7 then you can follow these instructions to proceed step by step. Basically add the OSRF repository together with the key.

(edited after comment) Back to the original question of getting the latest gazebo7 version after installing ros-kinetic-desktop-full and got 7.0.0: steps should be the same as detailed in the step by step tutorial basically add the osrfoundation.org repository and run apt-get install gazebo7. That should give you the following output:

root@f8f9dfa4bc91:/# apt-get install gazebo7
