ImportError: No module named rosdep2.rospack
[rospack] Error: could not find python module 'rosdep2.rospack'. is rosdep up-to-date (at least 0.10.4)?

What is the cause of this error.? I have subsequently re-installed a new kinetic instance in a virtual machine ubuntu 16.04 with python 3.6 (default). It appears to run now. I previously ran with 2.7 environment (Anaconda).. this now gives the same error. What Python should be used?

Lunar only supports Python 2.7 (see REP-3 and (fi) #q269143). If you want to use Anaconda, you'll have to make sure that all ROS Python packages have been installed for that as Anaconda does not use the default / system Python packages. That is most likely why you are getting that error.

There have been quite some questions and answers about Anaconda posted/resolved recently, so a search should provide some pointers.
