You need to run that command from the root of your workspace, not from the root of your package. In other words, cd to the root of your workspace and run that command:

cd ~/catkin_ws
catkin_make

The part on that tutorial that says

$cd ~/catkin_ws/src/turtlesim_cleaner$ mkdir src
$catkin_make is incorrect. You should only call catkin_make from the root of your workspace. I've updated the tutorial. What it should (and does now) read is$ cd ~/catkin_ws/src/turtlesim_cleaner
$mkdir src$ cd ~/catkin_ws
