If you install rosjava from debian packages, it has already been built and is read-only. Thus, you cannot run 'ant dist' anymore -- there should already be a jar file inside of rosjava_core that you can use in your projects.

EDIT: Also check that your debian packages are up-to-date with:

apt-get install ros-electric-rosjava-core

It looks like you already installed it from debian packages. Does `ls ls /opt/ros/electric/stacks/rosjava_core/rosjava/dist` show `rosjava.jar`? If yes, it's installed correctly.

I don't see the 'dist' folder inside /opt/ros/electric/stacks/rosjava_core/rosjava

Installing from debian packages means running 'apt-get install ros-electric-rosjava-core'. If you did that and are in the situation you are, I'm not sure what happened. I'm going to attempt to do another release of rosjava today.
