Hi All,

I'm running ros kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04, 4.15.0-36-generic

when attempting to update/re-install librealsense, I get...

 sudo apt-get --reinstall install  'ros-*-librealsense' 
Reading package
 lists... Done Building dependency tree
 Reading state information... Done
 Note, selecting
 'ros-kinetic-librealsense' for glob      'ros-*-librealsense'

 0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 1 to
 reinstall, 0 to remove and 588 not to
 upgrade. 1 not fully installed or
 removed. After this operation, 0 B of   additional disk space will be used. E:
 Internal Error, No file name for  ros-kinetic-librealsense:amd64

What exactly does this mean?

How would I solve it?

Please try sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get update. Then try reinstalling again. It could be that your apt cache is in an inconsistent state.

But also realise this is (almost certainly) not a ROS problem, but an APT (ie: general Debian/Ubuntu) one.
