I'm having the following message every time I try to use catkin_create_pkg. Any idea how to solve this???

Traceback (most recent call last):

    return ctemp.substitute(temp_dict)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.3/", line 121, in substitute
    return self.pattern.sub(convert, self.template)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.3/", line 111, in convert
    val = mapping[named]

it was a similar problem as the one described by tfoote, but instead of using pip, I was using the git repository. I deleted the catkin_ executable files and it works like charm right now (or it seems so)

What platform are you on?

It looks like you have catkin_pkg from pip. If you are mixing pip and debian packages you likely have mismatched versions. We recommend only installing from debian packages.
