I have a fresh install of precise that does not find the ros package even though the same apt-get command works find on a non-fresh ubuntu precise system.

When I use cat /etc/apt/sources.list, the following shows up:

See http//help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes for how to upgrade to newer versions of the distribution.

deb http//ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ precise main restricted universe multiverse deb-src http//ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ precise main restricted universe multiverse

Major bug fix updates produced after the final release of the distribution. deb http//ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ precise-updates main restricted universe multiverse deb-src http//ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ precise-updates main restricted universe multiverse

Uncomment the following two lines to add software from the 'universe' repository. N.B. software from this repository is ENTIRELY UNSUPPORTED by the Ubuntu team. Also, please note that software in universe WILL NOT receive any review or updates from the Ubuntu security team. deb http//ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ precise universe deb-src http//ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ precise universe deb http//ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ precise-updates universe deb-src http//ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ precise-updates universe

N.B. software from this repository may not have been tested as extensively as that contained in the main release, although it includes newer versions of some applications which may provide useful features. Also, please note that software in backports WILL NOT receive any review or updates from the Ubuntu security team. deb http//ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ precise-backports main restricted deb-src http//ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/ precise-backports main restricted

Note that the colon in the web addresses has been removed to allow myself to post the contents.

I have updated my keys and apt-get database per the installation wiki's instructions. I do not know what else is going wrong.

Please note that there is no installation of ROS already on this machine. This error occurs while trying to install it with the command: sudo apt-get install ros-groovy-desktop-full

There is a problem in the ROS repository. So you need to set up your repository to

deb http://packages.ros.org/ahendrix-mirror/ubuntu precise main

You will also need to use a different package name, because "ros-diamondback-desktop-full" is not in the repositories.

* Warning: I do not know the differences between the packages below, and ros-diamondback *

I am able to install ros-groovy-ros or ros-groovy-ros-full Maybe those packages will work for you.

Well, ROS is not actually going to be found in that list.

It is found here, as you can see:

allenh1@muri-pc7:~$ cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ && ls | grep ros
ros-latest.list
ros-latest.list.distUpgrade
ros-latest.list.save

As apposed to in the sources list. So, just reinstall ROS (if the above command gives no output). Hope this was of use!
