Rosdep Error

I'm a newbie to Linux and ROS.

Have successfully installed Ubuntu and (I believe) ROS and am in the process of installing various stacks.

One stack is the iheart-robotics rovio driver.

I've attempted to follow the directions to the point I am supposed to issue "rosdep install rovio" from within the installation directory.

It spins for a few seconds and reports an error. The sequence is:

mike@mike-EP45C-UD3R:~/mikeros/iheart-ros-pkg$ dir ihr_demos ihr_tools README rovio

mike@mike-EP45C-UD3R:~/mikeros/iheart-ros-pkg$ cd rovio
mike@mike-EP45C-UD3R:~/mikeros/iheart-ros-pkg/rovio$ rosdep install rovio
executing this script:
 set -o errexit
#No Packages to install
mike@mike-EP45C-UD3R:~/mikeros/iheart-ros-pkg/rovio$

I presume this is an error. Or does this indicate that the dependencies have previously been resolved?

Many thanks...

-Mike

That means everything is already installed.

Those messages are confusing. I opened rosdep enhancement ticket #3346 to make the output clearer.

This does mean that all dependencies required were already detected on the system.
