It looks like the erratic_robot package is still a rosbuild package, and isn't released into Hydro.

You can install it from source in a rosbuild workspace, but it can't be released until it's converted to catkin.

since erratic_robot is a rosbuild package, you cannot build it with catkin_make, and you cannot build against it from a catkin package. You should set up a separate rosbuild workspace for Hydro, overlaid on your Hydro catkin workspace, and built it there.

See for instructions on how to set up a rosbuild workspace that is overlaid on your catkin workspace.
