I am trying to setup the Arduino IDE according to the tutorial -> http://wiki.ros.org/rosserial_arduino/Tutorials/Arduino%20IDE%20Setup However, I ran into this problem at the last step where i run the following command.

rosrun rosserial_arduino make_libraries.py .

At the terminal, I received the result below. Any insight on what caused this and how to fix this? Thank you.

 *** Warning, failed to generate libraries for the following packages: ***
    urdf_tutorial (missing dependency: convex_decomposition)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/user/catkin_ws/install/share/rosserial_arduino/make_libraries.py", line 91, in <module>
