I have Ubuntu 12.04 and trying to install ROS using this tutorial

when trying this command sudo sh -c 'echo "deb precise main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'

found error :

sudo: unable to change to sudoers gid: Operation not permitted sudo: setresuid() [0, 0, 0] -> [116, -1, -1]: Operation not permitted

what the wrong ?? :)

Is your user account member of the group "admin"? By default ubuntu grants permission to execute sudo to users of that group.

Otherwise, this might help you. Apparently, updating ubuntu and restarting the computer solved a similar issue for another ubuntu user.

Good luck.
