I run ROS Indigo on Ubuntu 14.04, and I have my catkin_ws in a given path. Everything worked perfectly until yesterday.
However, yesterday I tried to set up the Matlab engine to see if it was compatible with ROS. I got some errors for some reasons, but I don't care right now. What bothers me is that now I cannot change directory on my catkin_ws anymore, through
roscd, because the command redirects me to
/opt/ros/indigo. Obviously, I tried to source both the corresponding
devel/setup.bash again, and my
~/.bashrc after inserting the source command inside, None of the solutions worked.
So, I tried to create a second workspace, say
test_catkin_ws, and after building it I sourced its
devel/setup.bash. This time
roscd command correctly worked and successfully redirected to
test_catkin_ws/devel. However, If I try to source again the first workspace,
roscd command wrongly redirects me to
test_catkin_ws/devel. So, it seems that the
setup.bash does not work for the first workspace, and the system redirects to the last workspace correctly sourced.
If useful, I show here the output of
printenv | grep -i ros:

Thank you in advance for whoever can help me to solve this issue.

Have you tried to delete the devel folder in the first workspace and redo catkin_make?
