It looks like there's something wrong with your ROS installation or your system libraries. It would be useful to know which OS you're using, which version of ROS you're using, and a link to the install instructions you followed when installing ROS.

Hello. The OS that I'm using is Raspbian with ROS Indigo, and when I bought RPi already had the OS loaded.

What do you recommend me?

It looks like ROS isn't installed correctly, or some of the dependencies are missing. Have you made any changes (particularly with dpkg or apt-get) since you got it?

Interestingly, this is an issue with the same version of boost that you reported here: . I suspect these are related.

Of course, I wrote that question. But proposed solutions did not work. Even I have that problem. Try to install dependencies from this website using dpkg -i

Ok. it would have been good to give feedback on the original question indicating that the proposed solutions didn't work, and the error message involved.

I ran the line that you give me, and I edited my question with the result

The libboost_thread library, version 1.54.0 is missing from your system.

This might be an error in the original OS image, or it might be that you removed or upgraded libboost_thread.

I would start attempting to solve this by running:

sudo apt-get install libboost-thread1.54.0

If that results in an error, please EDIT your question with the TEXT of the command output. Please don't take a screenshot, because screenshots are not searchable


It looks like you don't have your apt repositories set up correctly. Have you enabled the main, universe, multiverse and restricted repositories as recommended in the UbuntuARM install guide? You can follow the instructions here for enabling repositories.
