I want to install ROS Kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04. While I ran this instruction

"source ~/.bashrc"

, I got this error:

'bash: /home/aiswarya/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bashsource: No such file or directory'

Please help, I am a beginner to ROS. Thanks.

Please provide the link to the tutorial you followed and a description of what you are trying to accomplish.

The error seems pretty explicit: the file you are trying to source doesn't exist Most likely you are trying to source a workspace that hasn't been built yet.

I wanted to create a workspace and create a package in ROS. I followed the tutorial (2:22 -2:30)

As @marguedas said the error explicitly tells you that the file setup.bashsource doesn't exist, which is normal since the file should be setup.bash. I would guess that when executing the previous command of your tutorial echo source ~/catkin_ws/devel/setup.bash >> ~/.bashrc you might have wrongly typed something and appended source at the end of the file name. Check your .bashrc file to correct this typo.
