I am trying to install ROS using CMake, as shown in the tutorials. I am getting some strange errors in the process. I also checked that catkin was installed correctly and the python path was also correct. Can anybody please help me?

I had the same problem after some deep learning package installation which messed up my pythonpath catkin_pkg in my installation was in /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages which was missing from pythonpath. So, this fixed it "export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages"
