I have worked with the turtlebot without issues, but at one seemingly random point I could not run the bringup of the turtlebot roslaunch turtlebot3_bringup turtlebot3_robot.launch

It stops at the following:

... logging to /home/ubuntu/.ros/log/86af288a-bf01-11eb-b39e-48b02d2b81aa/roslaunch-ubuntu-2658.log

Checking log directory for disk usage. This may take a while.

Other post mentioned it was a battery issue. I charged my turtlebot3 up to full. Then the next bringup worked. But after that one bringup, it had the same error again, even after again charging those few percentages.

I have tried doing an apt-get update and upgrade -> still the same issue. What could it be? All the sudden stopped working..

Rerunning the command rosrun turtlebot3_bringup create_udev_rules helps. Although it sometimes also doesn't. I ran this command on the one day, it worked. The day after: it didn't. Two days after that (today) it did work again.

You can give it a try.

Update: Not for long.. after the third bringup it again doesn't work..
