There should be a valid URI specified after the 'uri': identifier in your rosinstall file. Turns out there is a nao_extras repository, so the correct rosinstall entry would probably be:

{'git': {'local-name': 'nao_extras', 'uri': ''}}

yep that is the line I entered into the bash. But i got the above error. In my post i had to replace the links with "<nao_extra link=""> " because i dont have enough karma to post any link.
