Following these instructions , at the step when rosdep install --from-paths src -i -y is executed I get

ERROR: the following packages/stacks could not have their rosdep keys resolved
to system dependencies:
rosjava_build_tools: No definition of [python-rosinstall-generator] for OS [osx]

This error looks similar to this error.

I checked rosjava_build_tools folder and .rosinstall is missing. I added rosjava_build_tools to ROS_PACKAGE_PATH following the advice given here.

Any help is appreciated.

EDIT: moving to the next step and calling catkin_make does not produce errors.

It looks like the rosdep rule for the python rosinstall_generator is missing on OSX. You should open a ticket or a pull request against rosdistro to fix this.

See the doc on contributing rosdep rules for more information.
