Hi Mani,

You're right that it's the target distro you want to test your code inside
the docker environment.

That sounds like a bug in the prerelease generation script. I see the same
error. Please file a ticket here:
https://github.com/ros-infrastructure/ros_buildfarm and we'll try to trace
it down. It seems that the lookup of valid os code names is failing.
