sudo install ros-kinetic-desktop-full

Although there is an install command, it is unrelated to what you want to do (if you want a clue as to what it is for, see man install).

What you should have done is:

sudo apt install ros-kinetic-desktop-full

Note the apt; install is a subcommand thereof just like update (apt and apt-get are more or less synonymous in this case; the former is a newer interface than apt-get).
