rosdep install --from-paths /opt/ros/jade --ignore-src

Change from "jade" to your distro.

looks like you haven't got convex_decomposition installed and it needs it.

try installing that with apt-get install ros-<rosdistro>-convex-decomposition

replacing rosdistro with the name of the distro you have installed.
