I am trying to install kinetic on on arch by following this tutorial: . After step 2.1.2 I got the following error:

ERROR: Rosdep experienced an error: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 213: ordinal not in range(128)
Please go to the rosdep page [1] and file a bug report with the stack trace below.
