The name of the directory != of the package(s).

The repository is called RPLidar_Hector_SLAM, so git will clone it into a directory RPLidar_Hector_SLAM.

However, the repository contains two sub directories:

  • hector_slam
  • rplidar_ros

those are the packages.

--only-pkg-with-deps only accepts names of packages, not of directories.

Note btw that both hector_slam as well as rplidar_ros are standalone packages that are normally hosted somewhere else. The NickL77/RPLidar_Hector_SLAM repository places them together, but does not track upstream. And it contains a snapshot of both packages of already 2.5 years old.

You may want to make sure you are not missing important bug fixes.

However, the repository contains two sub directories:directories (which happen to contain packages with the same name):

  • rplidar_ros

those are the packages.
