Moveit Setup Assistant Package Missing

I installed the Moveit! package following this link.

Then I moved to the Setup Assistant but I encountered the following problem :

:~$ roslaunch moveit_setup_assistant setup_assistant.launch
[setup_assistant.launch] is neither a launch file in package [moveit_setup_assistant] nor is [moveit_setup_assistant a launch file name
The traceback for the exception was written to the log file

When I tried to check if the package moveit_setup_assistant exists, this is what it showed :

:~$ rospack find moveit_setup_assistant
[rospack] Error: package 'moveit_setup_assistant' not found

I have tried to search for answers but I haven't been able to find any. From this link it seems like they have aborted the setup_assistant package for Jade.

Any solutions to this problem?

You need to run sudo apt-get update first and then enter following command as mentioned here

sudo apt-get install ros-jade-moveit
source /opt/ros/jade/setup.bash

I had a similar issue with jade but following above instructions I solved them. Hope it helps

This package can be downloaded from the following link:

You can build this package from the local catkin_workspace using "catkin_make".

Note: In some scenarios, the dependent packages will be missing from your PC. As far as i know we need "FCL" for this.
