Hi All,

I am new to ROS and working my way through the installation and startup tutorial on the wiki. I'm using Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS

After installing groovy using apt-get, I run sudo rosdep init.

Then, I go to run rosdep update and get the following error:

kurt@sharceye1:~$ rosdep update

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/kurt/ros/ros/bin/rosdep", line 34, in <module> from ros import rosdep

File "/opt/ros/groovy/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ros/", line 54, in __getattr__ roslib.load_manifest(name.split('.')[0])

File "/opt/ros/groovy/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/roslib/", line 62, in load_manifest sys.path = _generate_python_path(package_name, _rospack) + sys.path

File "/opt/ros/groovy/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/roslib/", line 93, in _generate_python_path m = rospack.get_manifest(pkg)

File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/rospkg/", line 136, in get_manifest return self._load_manifest(name)

File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/rospkg/", line 175, in _load_manifest retval = self._manifests[name] = parse_manifest_file(self.get_path(name), self._manifest_name)

File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/rospkg/", line 167, in get_path raise ResourceNotFound(name, ros_paths=self._ros_paths)

rospkg.common.ResourceNotFound: rosdep

ROS path [0]=/opt/ros/groovy/share/ros

ROS path [1]=/opt/ros/groovy/share

ROS path [2]=/opt/ros/groovy/stacks

The same error occurs even if I only do rosdep --version.

Using apt-get to re-install rosdep does not seem to help.

Trying to reinstall all of ROS (I think) like this:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall ros-groovy-desktop-full

does not resolve this.

Then, trying

sudo apt-get install --reinstall python-rospkg

doesn't seem to help either - I get the same error running rosdep.

Does anybody have a suggestion of what else I might try?

I got a little farther I think.

After uninstalling ros-groovy-desktop-full, I then do

aptitude purge ~c

apt-get autoremove

Then I reinstall ros-groovy-desktop-full. Now when I do

rosdep update

I get:

rosdep: error: Unsupported command update.

Any Ideas? Thanks!

For future reference, additional information about your problem should be added as an edit to your question, rather than added as an answer. This helps keep the Q&A format clearer. (I'm sorry - I don't know the answer to your question, and I'm using a different install than you)
