As of this AM, I updated all the deb packages on my 16.04 machine, and now wstools 0.1.16 does not work. 0.1.12 still does. With 0.1.16, I get this when I run rosws:

$ rosws up
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/rosws", line 52, in <module>
    import rosinstall.rosws_cli
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/rosinstall/", line 33, in <module>
    import wstool.helpers
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/wstool/", line 37, in <module>
    from wstool.config_elements import SetupConfigElement

I'm looking into it.

Just an observation: rosws was (is?) specifically meant to manage rosbuild workspaces. It's replacement is wstool. A further evolution (which removes even more assumptions about the tools being used with/for ROS, is vcstool.
