ERROR: the following packages/stacks could not have their rosdep keys resolved

I get this error when I tried to do [tf/Tutorial/Introduction to tf]. Anyone else know how to solve this? Much appreciated.

I guess it is unable to locate package turtle_tf and rviz. Most probably the environment setup is not working properly. Check whether you are able to locate package rviz and turtle_tf using roscd command.

I think you're missing this line in your rosdep sources (/etc/ros/rosdep/sources.list.d/20-default.list)

gbpdistro fuerte

"gbpdistro fuerte"

I believe it's required for fuerte but not newer.
