I run sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-urdf-tutorial (I've tried installing desktop-full which gets to the urdf-tutorial and hits the same problem) and the get never seems to complete. Its like its downloading the same package again and again... After a few hours, the console looks like this and I've downloaded 7.5 GBytes :

That's definitely not normal. Two things:

  1. are you behind a proxy?
  2. what is the initial output of sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-urdf-tutorial (ie: which pkgs does it say it wants to install)?

Also: here is something that seems similar. The proxy thing comes up in the answers there as well.

The problem turned out to be caused by the implicit proxy between my host machine and my VM. Changing the network interface from NAT to bridged solved the problem. Thanks for the assistance.
