Hi, I’m having issue installing ros after this update. I’m on ubuntu 16.04.

When I try to apt install ros-kinetic-ros-core after using apt update it attempts to fetch python-rospkg 1.1.9 and python-rospkg-modules 1.1.9. Neither of those exist after this update so it just gives me an error about not being able to find them. I’d expect apt update to cause it to search for 1.1.10, but that’s not happening and I’m confused as to how to fix this. I have a file in my /etc/apt/sources.list.d for ros called ros-latest.list and it’s contents are,

deb xenial main

I’ve also mentioned my issue on answers.ros here,, if you think that’s a better place to answer.

You’re correct that ROS Answers is the correct place for your question following our support guidelines. Your issues with downloading rospkg via apt are not related to this announcement. And double posting it to multiple forums ends up cluttering everyones inbox.
