Are there any clear issues I should be aware of when installing ROS on Ubuntu 13.04 from source? I followed the instructions but am having issues installing the packages, specifically the two following packages:

E: Unable to locate package python-rosdep E: Unable to locate package python-wstool

Could someone please help?

Should I downgrade to 12.10? Is that a better idea?

I know a couple of days ago I read a question where another user was having issues with 13.04 ( -- Obviously, this won't help you in any way other than to let you know that others are experiencing problems..

Only ROS Hydro supports Ubuntu Raring, and that is still in alpha test. What version of ROS are you trying to install?
