I suspect you are mixing the Electric common_rosdeps with the Diamondback geometry stack.

It is fine to have both installed on your machine, but stick to one distribution at a time in your $ROS_ROOT and $ROS_PACKAGE_PATH.

ROS Base does not come with geometry or common_rosdeps, so I think joq's advice is correct. Whereever those came from, they came from incompatible branches.

yes - but i install it via roslocate info XXX and rosinstall XXX - could it be from over branch? O_o

try "roslocate info XXX --distro=electric" to make sure that you are pulling in the desired version. Or, just follow the ROS installation instructions for "ROS Desktop" which already provide you all of the same libraries in a coherent version.
