I am following the guide to install ROS Indigo from source. I am on Arch Linux and I have a problem on the following step.

[andro@andro-dell ros_catkin_ws]$ rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro indigo -y
executing command [sudo -H pacman -Sy --needed eigen3]

 archlinuxfr is up to date
warning: eigen-3.3.3-1 is up to date -- skipping
 there is nothing to do
ERROR: the following rosdeps failed to install
  pacman: Failed to detect successful installation of [eigen3]

Just to see the message "warning: <packet> is up to date" seems wrong.

Later, I managed to downgrade eigen package to version 3.2.0. And tried the same line:

[andro@andro-dell ros_catkin_ws]$ rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro indigo
executing command [sudo -H pacman -Sy --needed eigen3]
