I'm troubled in install ROS on Ubuntu 14.04, when I try rosdep update, this is what it shows:

~$ rosdep update
reading in sources list data from /etc/ros/rosdep/sources.list.d
Query rosdistro index
Add distro "groovy"
ERROR: error loading sources list:
    The read operation timed out

Thanks for your respond. I have tried all day, but it never work, it just keep giving me the same error. And I'm not using proxy. This is what it shows after I put wget:

$ wget

This could be a transient error: have you tried again? Does it ever work?

Are you behind a network proxy? What is the output of


for instance?
