I did a rosdep update and reinstall of the rosserver_suite.

Is this a python version issue?

It is working OK on most of my machines in both melodic or kinetic. On one machine it continues to fail. I built in a catkin workspace to inspect all files. In the file this line below generates a python error. It says there isn't any to convert int() I tried changing to float. forcing it by the comment eliminates the python error, but the roslaunch still generates errors, and the ports do not allow connections. At this point I am wondering if it is some kind off ssl blocking on this machine.

address = rospy.get_param('~address', "")

---> external_port = int(rospy.get_param('~websocket_external_port', port)) <--------- external_port = int(9090) RosbridgeWebSocket.client_manager = ClientManager()

This isn't a major problem for me, just an interesting exercise in trying to figure out why some things fail;-)

Also, the versions of the rosapi_node are different in the working kinetic version rosapi_node is 198 lines and does not have a topics and raw type. in the busted version the rospi node is the same as in melodic, it is 204 lines.
