Hello! I have a turtlebot that I am trying to upgrade to electric so that I can use the turtlebot arm, and I am wondering if there is any info on how to go about doing that. I have installed electric on it experimentally, but do I need to go through reinstalling all the turtlebot software? Does the entire OS need to be reinstalled? I saw the turotial pages for upgrading turtlebot to electric, but they appear to be mostly missing and claim that the iso on the page is not correct yet. Thank you very much!

A re-install is not needed. I've filled in the upgrade tutorial. Please let us know if you have any issues.

I solved this problem by using the following command:

sudo apt-get install ros-electric-turtlebot-robot

It works great now. I did not need to mess with the diamondback installation at all or reinstall anything. Please bear in mind that I had already installed ros-electric on this laptop through conventional means.
