Dear Madam/Sir
I need help to create and compile a simple ros package.
The official documentation on GitHub ( refers me to building on a docker container, however it states that the docker has not yet made available. I also can't find a docker container available for download.
Furthermore, The tab in the official documentation titled as "Working With ROS" is also unavailable (broken link - page not found).
I also tried to build a workspace and compile on the device. when I run catkin_create_pkg, I get the following error message implying that the installation of the catkin package is broken:
bash-4.3# catkin_create_pkg test
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/catkin_create_pkg", line 10, in <module>
    from catkin_pkg.package_templates import create_package_files, PackageTemplate
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/catkin_pkg/", line 35, in <module>
    import getpass
ImportError: No module named getpass
How do I compile and build a simple ROS program?
