I am trying to use the roslibpy for ROSbridge. For that I first needed to install ROS bridge. After installing ROS, i followed the instructions here I could install the rosbridge_server as well as web_republisher. But as soon as I try to run the republisher by using rosrun tf2_web_republisher tf2_web_republisher, it gives me an error Segmentation fault (core dumped). I have tried this on multiple PC's now and it gives me the same error always at this point.

Re-install ros-kinetic and then install tf2_web_republisher. Its weird but the segmentation fault stops occurring

You probably don't need to reinstall everything, but you will need to upgrade all ROS packages.

An ABI breakage was introduced a few weeks ago and we're still experiencing the fall-out of that.

I agree that's a better way to do it. I was not able to find command of how to upgrade only the ROS packages. Do you think the following commands might be able to do it? $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get --only-upgrade ros-kinetic-*

@gvdhoorn : do you know a command to upgrade the ROS packages ?
