I'm trying to install KnowRob on my computer (Ubuntu 16.04, ROS Kinetic) following the instructions in the KnowRob webpage. When executing the command:

    rosdep install --ignore-src --from-paths .

the first line that appears is:

    executing command [sudo -H apt-get install ros-kinetic-urdfdom-py]

and afterwards:

    E: Unable to locate package ros-kinetic-urdfdom-py

I searched and added the package manually, but the command sudo -H apt.get... is still being called and the error persists.

Has ros-kinetic-urdfdom-py been erased from the ros repository? Would it be possible to just comment the code line calling this command. If yes, where could I find it?

I think you are having some other issue, as urdfdom-py exists and is maintained as per here and I can install it without issues. Can you try a sudo apt-get update?

I found the problem. You were right, the problem was somewhere else. I installed some packages manually and some files got installed in the wrong folder. Everything working. Thx aPonza
