Can someone help me with how to reset this so I can try again? Is it rosdep init?

What did you do prior to this?

Reposting the same question twice doesn't help solve the problem. It just means that less people are going to see your question. Especially when the repost is less detailed.

This looks like a bug in rosdep. I suggest you follow the link and file a bug.

It looks like you reported this a few days ago and it was fixed: https://github.com/ros-infrastructure... . Why ask about it again here?

I guess because the fix didn't seem to fix it. But you're right, I should have added a comment. But now I can't find the "fix", can you point me to it? It doesn't appear here nor the other question I asked.
