Howdy folks,

I have the following issue when I start roscore:

 /opt/ros/kinetic/lib/rosout/rosout: symbol lookup error: /opt/ros/kinetic/lib/ undefined symbol: _ZN5boost9re_detail12perl_matcherIN9__gnu_cxx17__normal_iteratorIPKcNSt7__cxx1112basic_stringIcSt11char_traitsIcESaIcEEEEESaINS_9sub_matchISC_EEENS_12regex_traitsIcNS_16cpp_regex_traitsIcEEEEE14construct_initERKNS_11basic_regexIcSJ_EENS_15regex_constants12_match_flagsE

This is on a laptop (Dell Precision M4700) that I haven't run ROS on for about a year. The OS is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and has always been kept fully up-to-date.

I fully removed and then reinstalled libboost-all-dev and ros-kinetic-destkop-full but to no avail, I always end up with the above issue.

Anyone any ideas?

Thanks in advance
