You have been using two incompatible versions of "rosdep" and "rosdistro" during the roll out phase.
Please make sure to update all packages as mentioned in the second announcement email (https://code.ros.org/lurker/message/20130423.025734.7689bd35.en.html).

rosdep will continue to work as-is.
It is neither necessary to delete sources nor to re-initialization the cache.
