@bchretien @nickoe The problem seems to come from the fact that python libraries are not installed in the same location in ubuntu and arch (lib v.s. lib64). see for the workaround used on gentoo without disabling the tests

@bchretien, aha, that was what it was trying to do. You workaround works for me so far. Now I can move on with my indigo upgrade :)

Have you tested if the same issue exists for jade?

@nickoe: I found a workaround (the issue happens in the tests, and we can disable them), but we'll need to report that to the developers.

@nickoe: for an install, it installs missing packages recursively as needed. If you try with multiple packages as an input, I guess it does not try to factorize dependencies either.

I managed to reproduce the issue after removing ros-indigo-dynamic-reconfigure, as it was actually relying on the system's module rather than the one in the build directory. Now we need to figure out what changed...

@bchretien, I mean, it should not be able to install a package if all dependencies are not satisfied, so it will install the dependency first.

An example in this case, is that I just try to install ros-indigo-driver-base now, and it depends on ros-indigo-dynamic-reconfigure, but then the ros-indigo-dynamic-reconfigure fails with the previously mentioned error.

Otherwise could this mean that there are missing dependencies here, or?

I also tried to force -j1 to make, incase there was a race condition in the cmake dependencies.

@bchretien, yes, I understand that yaours does not favor the dependencies when updating packages unfortunately. But sholdn't it do that even if you feed it a big list of package names? I mean for a new install, not a reinstall (update).

@nickoe: I don't know if that's your issue here, but the problem if you ask yaourt to reinstall packages is that it does not respect the dependency graph when updating. For instance:

$ yaourt -S ros-indigo-message-generation ros-indigo-actionlib-msgs
==> Downloading ros-indigo-actionlib-msgs PKGBUILD from AUR...

Having a safe and proper way to do this is more difficult that it sounds. Reinstalling all ros-indigo packages, while unelegant, is a more straightforward solution.

Hmm, ok, now this package is problematic. As you may have noticed, I have had some issues with updating ros-indigo-*. What I did not was to remove all ros-indigo-* packages, after I have synthesized a list of the installed packages I had. I now told yaourt to install all those packages again, but I am seeing this error with this package.
