I have been using rosserial connect to Mbed and the node was working well, and recently there was a few times of software update. After the update I cannot run the node and it give the following information. My Mbed was operating well and the I am currently using Ubuntu14.04 ros indigo

I just had the same result. And it was working on this computer a few weeks before. It seems unrelated to rosserial package: Ubuntu bug ticket

Downgrade to 3.13.0-62-generic and it should work.
