Hi, all

I have meet a strange problem. I just update something in my system yesterday under the upgrade pushing notify and also used the command sudo apt-get update , But today all my ros project with rviz simulation can not work. These ros project do work well before.The phenomenon can be seen as follows.

system:ROS indigo
robot_state_publisher : ros-indigo-robot-state-publisher ,version: 1.10.4-0trusty-20150430-1718-+0000
joint_state_publisher: ros-indigo-joint-state-publisher, version:1.11.7-0trusty-20150429-0827-+0000

 1. roslaunch SIA20_moveit_config  moveit_planning_execution.launch

[robot_state_publisher-4] process has died [pid 10035, exit code -11, cmd /home/XXX/catkin_ws/devel/lib/robot_state_publisher/robot_state_publisher __name:=robot_state_publisher __log:=/home/XXX/.ros/log/72142730-009f-11e5-9cf8-00226811834c/robot_state_publisher-4.log].
log file: /home/XXX/.ros/log/72142730-009f-11e5-9cf8-00226811834c/robot_state_publisher-4*.log

the moveit rviz GUI can be seen as followed.the GUI shows

Global Status:warn
Fixed frame: no tf data. Actual error: Fixed Frame[base_link] does not exist**

But this is warning is incredible,you know the project can work well before, then I recheck the *.srdf file. I have fixed the base_link:

 virtual_joint name="FixedBase" type="fixed" parent_frame="world" child_link="base_link"

I have no idea about that,So, I check the system in-build pr2's demo.launch. the pr2 can also work well before

2. roslaunch pr2_moveit_config   demo.launch

hi,tfoote, I have read the information contained in the link,but ,I can not understand the meaning. how to solve it

Yeah, I just noticed a similarity between updating and a problem with robot_state_publisher. You should try to track down the source of the invalid quaternion. It's possibly the reason robot_state_publisher is crashing.

Your errors with apt-get are completely unrelated to ROS and suggest that you have either poor connectivitiy to your ubuntu apt mirror or that they are incomplete or out of date.
