Hi everyone,

When I tried to run the command wstool update at root@ubuntu:/home/travisz/ros_sandbox/hw3/src# directory in the terminal, the following error showed up,

[moveit_robots] Updating /home/travisz/ros_sandbox/test/src/moveit_robots
WARNING [vcstools] Command failed: 'git checkout master'
run at: '/home/travisz/ros_sandbox/test/src/moveit_robots'
errcode: 1:
error: pathspec 'master' did not match any file(s) known to git.
Exception caught during install: Error processing 'moveit_robots' : [moveit_robots] Update Failed of /home/travisz/ros_sandbox/test/src/moveit_robots
ERROR in config: Error processing 'moveit_robots' : [moveit_robots] Update Failed of /home/travisz/ros_sandbox/test/src/moveit_robots

Could you give me some advice on how to solve it?

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

wstool takes relative path. See also the wiki for wstool update command.

You said:

I tried to run the command 'wstool update' in the 'src' directory

but your error output says the following. Check the directory where you are at.

run at: '/home/travisz/ros_sandbox/test/src/moveit_robots'

(Btw when reporting errors, better copy-paste all the command you ran, instead of verbally explaining that you ran command A. You think you ran command A, but it's possible you actually did something different.)

Thanks for answering. What I did was root@ubuntu:/home/travisz/ros_sandbox/hw3/src# wstool update
