this rom is for J500F but you can still test and report if it works on the J500FN also i need to mention that i dont own this device.
On 184.108.40.206 Samsung released officaly Android 6.0.1 for SM-J500F for the Indian J5 model, i decided to take this thing in my hand and tryed to make it 7 days after its release available for all Countries and ofc easy to install. TECHNICALLY it should boot fine for the J500F and J500FN model, however I CANT guarantee that it will boot so you need to try your luck and test. PLEASE: As soon as you test out, head over to XDA and post or pm me if it woked.
Edit: Seems like marshmallow wont boot with the lollipop bootloader so in clear text that does mean that you cant get around using Odin. If you are an J500F user please contact me. For J500FN users i am sorry to say that its unpossible currently to get marshmallow on your device because j500fn will refuse to load the j500f bootloader
