Hi!

I had a mess because I installed the source and binary electric ros versions. I tried to take everything out and install the source version again, but it does not work. It says there is a problem with the version checkout. What can it be? (I removed everythin ros-el* in apt-get and the source folder ~/ros).

I tried to install the full version. This is what I get:



:~$ rosinstall ~/ros "http://packages.ros.org/cgi-bin/gen_rosinstall.py?rosdistro=electric&variant=desktop-full&overlay=no"

I moved to ubuntu 11.10, and althought this has nothing to do with the problem, I installed ROS from source on a clean ubuntu installation. I am sorry not to post the anwer to your question, but I needed ROS working ASAP. I'll keep an eze on vcstools whenever I'm having this problem again.

Hi, this may have been a bug in vcstools version 0.1.7, it is already fixed in 0.1.8. Please update vcstools.

Actually I could not reproduce your error even with that version, could you run rosinstall --version if the error persist and post the result?

Make sure to update vcstools by either running sudo pip install -U rosinstall or sudo easy_install -U rosinstall vcstools

@KruseT It fixed mots of the problems reported above in my case. However I still have this: ERROR in config: Error processing 'nodelet_core' : [nodelet_core] Checkout of <a href="https://kforge.ros.org/common/nodeletcore">https://kforge.ros.org/common/nodeletcore</a> version nodelet_core-1.6.2 into /Users/luca/Software/ros/electric/nodelet_core failed.
