What's the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list? Did you execute sudo apt-get update before trying to install python-rosinstall?

Yes; you should run 'sudo apt-get update' after to refresh your cache.

I have a same problem, I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 and content of /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list is deb natty main, and still got this error. Can someone please help me in this regard ?

@Zari: 11.04 is no longer supported; I suspect the binaries you're looking for no longer exist.
