Cloning into 'gps_umd'... fatal: unable to connect to Name or service not known


I think the repository location is changed. Please let me know from where the gps_umd package can be downloaded.

It looks like their server is just down, I would suggest contacting the maintainers directly to notify them if they don't already know.

Does the git:// prefix work for you? Or do you have to use the http:// prefix?

first type " roscd " then " git clone "This would clone the gps_umd stack into your ROS Workspace.
