'geometry_msgs' depends on non-existent package 'message_runtime'

asked 2013-04-30 23:11:02 -0600

hi everybody,

I' m trying to install a packege but rosmake ends by this error:

[rospack] Error: package/stack 'geometry_msgs' depends on non-existent >package 'message_runtime' and rosdep claims that it is not a system >dependency. Check the ROS_PACKAGE_PATH or try calling 'rosdep update'

ROS_PACKAGE_PATH is setted on the packege path i'm installing and rosupdate fails by a 404 file not found error. I did't find any documentation about message_runtime package. could someone help me?

Are you installing ros-groovy? Try installing message-runtime.

sudo apt-get install ros-groovy-message-runtime should install the package.

thanks for you answer. I' m already on groovy and when I try sudo apt-get install ros-groovy-message-runtime the shell tell me: ros-groovy-message-runtime is already the newest version.

Try running rosdep update and restart the shell. I hope it solves the problem

rosdep update stops after the massage: Hit ERROR: error loading sources list: HTTP Error 404: Not Found
