These instructions will guide you through upgrading your TurtleBot from Diamondback to Electric

  1. Open a terminal window
  2. Update apt repos
    sudo apt-get update
  3. Install new electric packages
    sudo apt-get install ros-electric-turtlebot-robot
  4. Source setup.bash
    source /opt/ros/electric/setup.bash
  5. Configure upstart to use electric. <wireless-id> should be something like "wlan0".

    roscd turtlebot_bringup/upstart
    sudo ./install.bash <wireless-id>
  6. Edit your ~/.bashrc by replacing all instances of "diamondback" with "electric"
  7. Restart your turtlebot computer for changes to take effect.
  8. You may optionally remove the Diamondback install to save space. Keeping the old version of ROS around is not a problem, just be sure your paths always point to /opt/ros/electric.
    sudo apt-get remove ros-diamondback-turtlebot-robot
