Not able to run perf on Linux 4.4 kernel (Ubuntu 15.10)

I'm not able to run perf on linux 4.4. I'm using ubuntu 15.10.

The error I'm getting is:

WARNING: perf not found for kernel 4.4.0

You may need to install the following packages for this specific kernel: linux-tools-4.4.0-4.4.0 linux-cloud-tools-4.4.0-4.4.0

You may also want to install one of the following packages to keep up to date: linux-tools-4.4.0 linux-cloud-tools-4.4.0

I also tried to install linux-tools specific package and even then I'm getting the same error. Am I doing something wrong here?

What happened when you "tried" to install the tools package?

I have installed this:

linux-tools-common 4.4.0-6.21

from this website:

It says that it is successfully installed. But I'm not able to run perf. I'm getting same error message.

Am I missing something?

Not sure if this is the issue, but you may want to look at installing "linux-tools-generic" which may also be required.

Also, it is likely that you may have to recompile - you should find what you need in /tools/perf.

But I'm unable to find linux-tools-generic here:

When I'm trying to do from this website:

I'm getting an error:
Dependency not satisfiable.
