Who was the first governmental group that governed starting with cincinnates through odoacer?

I guess that by Cincinnatus you mean Lucius Quinticus Cincinnatus a statesman from 460 BC to 439 BC. The Romans had governmental systems, not governmental groups. Cincinnatus lived during the days of the Roman Republic. The Republic was followed by the principate and the dominate. When the Western Roman Empire started to disintegrate under the weight of the Germanic invasions, political cohesion collapsed. There was a lot of infighting and many usurpers. Odoacer was one of the many usurpers.

Why is Cincinnati's a good example if the roman idea of civic duty?

I guess you mean Cincinnatus. Cincinnatus was an aristocrat who had lost most of its lands to pay for a huge fine for his son. He retired to work to a small farm. When the Romans were defeated by the Aequi he was appointed as dictator. This was an extraordinary officer of state with extraordinary powers who was appointed for six months to deal with emergencies and with a specific mandate. Cincinnatus was told about his appointment while he was ploughing his farm. He led the army and defeated the Aequi. He then resigned and returned to his farm 15 days after he had been appointed as he had accomplished his mandate. He was appointed dictator for a second time to suppress a conspiracy. As soon as he completed his task he resigned again. Cincinnatus was idealised by later Romans and a prime example of the higher virtues and moral rectitude of the Romans in their older days. Many later Romans felt that when Rome later acquired an empire and great wealth, this corrupted the elite. It created greed, a thirst for wealth and power and power conflicts. Cincinnatus was given supreme power twice and twice he resigned as soon as he accomplished the task he was given, rather than hold on to power for longer. Moreover, he returned to his farm to till it. The Roman aristocracy idealised the Romans as a people of hardy and frugal farmers and despised trade and the merchant class. The story of Cincinnatus being told about his appointment to supreme power while he was ploughing and his return to the plough epitomised this idealised view of the Romans as farmers and created a nostalgic picture of the old days when it was thought that the Romans had been true to their idealised selves.

Why did many Romans considered cincinnatus to a hero?

Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus (519 BC - 430 BC) was a Roman patrician (aristocrat) who had been impoverished by having to pay a huge fine for his son. He had to sell most of his land to pay for this. He then retired to work on the land he had left, which was only a small farm just outside Rome. He was appointed dictator in 458 BC to lead the Roman army against Aequi. He was told this while he was ploughing his land. He defeated the Aequi at the Battle of Mons Algidus. After this, he disbanded his army, resigned, and returned to his plough. His resignation was nothing exceptional. Dictators were supposed to resign when they completed their mandated task. Cincinnatus' leaving the plough and returning to it was mythologised by Roman historians. To them this epitomised the ideals of the Roman aristocracy who liked to see the Romans as frugal, hardy, dutiful and upright farmers. Cincinnatus was seen as a perfect case of service to the greater good, civic virtue, lack of personal ambition, modesty and Roman gravitas and was seen as an indication of the rectitude of the older days as compared to the perceived decadence and corruption of the later days when Roman historians were writing their histories.
