I have installed Ubuntu 14.04 and am now attempting to install Turtlebot Indigo using instructions at .

When I enter the command: wstool init src -j5

A fatal error occurs (I left out all the parts I felt were irrelevant):

.... Unpacking objects: 100% (40/40), done. Checking connectivity... done. remote: Counting objects: 4683, done. [turtlebot_msgs] Done.% (47/4683)
[turtlebot_create,turtlebot,turtlebot_apps,turtlebot_viz] still active .....
[turtlebot_create,turtlebot,turtlebot_apps,turtlebot_simulator] still active ... [turtlebot_simulator] Done. fatal: unable to access '': Could not resolve host: ... Exception caught during install: Error processing 'turtlebot_apps' : [turtlebot_apps] Checkout of version indigo into /home/turtlebot/turtlebot/src/turtlebot_apps failed.

ERROR in config: Error processing 'turtlebot_apps' : [turtlebot_apps] Checkout of version indigo into /home/turtlebot/turtlebot/src/turtlebot_apps failed.

I am a new user to ROS so I am unsure of how to resolve this error.

Maybe you can run Ubuntu 13 with Hydro?

Does it happen every time you try? Sometimes, github causes a connection problem.

Yes. I did remove the src directory, re-entered the wstool command and it did complete the operation without an error. Thanks for your help.
