I have been struggling a couple of times working to solve why after installing the full indigo desktop library, I couldn't find no bash file in the installation directory(which path is opt/ros/indigo). By the way, this hadn't happened when I installed ros hydro (I would continue to work with this distribution if not the version of the os system-Ubuntu 14.04(Trusty) that I upgraded on my computer). Additionally commands like roslaunch and roscore aren't accomplished and a 'command not found' message appears Subsequently.

Could someone advice me what to do?

I'm writing here because this can't be written as a comment(I get a forbidden content note?),

The problem happens after I type the commands: echo "source /opt/ros/indigo/setup.bash" >> ~/.bashrc and source ~/.bashrc. The error I receive are: bash: /home/hayim/opt/ros/indigo/setup.bash: No such file or directory bash: export: `/home/hayim/opt/ros/indigo': not a valid identifier bash: /home/hayim/opt/ros/indigo/setup.bash: No such file or directory bash: /opt/ros/indigo/setup.bash: No such file or directory
