I’m a ROS newbie trying to install ROS Indigo core on a Raspberry PI running Debian Linux version ‘raspberrypi 3.18.11-v7+’, I’m following the ROS wiki tutorial [here] ) and get to Step 2.1 trying to install the robot variant but commands given appear to be trying to re-initialize the workspace created in the immediately prior step.

All of the instances of wstool init src ... are mutually exclusive as far as I can see. Other places in the document the "updating" commands wstool merge -t src ... and wstool up -t src are used correctly, which will avoid wstool trying to re-initialize the workspace. Double check the instructions to make sure you're not using two command blocks that are not supposed to be used together.
