We can probably help you, but I'd like to know first why you're trying to install an 8-year old ROS version first. Do you have a specific reason why you're installing C Turtle?

well, i'm pretty new to ROS and I'm trying to run an example. they have recommended to use C Turtle.

unless you know what you are doing (ie: have become more comfortable with ROS), I would strongly recommend to not install C Turtle. In fact, I'd not touch any ROS versions other than Indigo, Kinetic or Lunar.
