Can you please describe your problem, what it is you're doing, and how you're doing it instead of just posting a dump of the error that you're receiving? This guide is helpful

I am trying to install Hector Quadrotor package. I am running ROS kinetic in an Ubuntu 16.04. It's failing to compile. Anyone who has faced the same issue or can recommend any other package compatible with ROS to simulate drones.

@gautams this is not helping, as it is only restating your OP. I'm not quite sure why you (or someone else?) removed the complete error output. This is essential for helping you here.

What @jayess was asking for is to keep the relevant lines (i.e. the errors, with a bit of context) but not all the stuff around, and add an explanation of what you are trying to do, like:

  • I downloaded the package X from repo Y branch Z and put it in my workspace
  • Then I called catkin_make and got the following error
  • I googled/search ROS answers and come up with the solution in question 12345 but it didin't work because of the following issue
  • Then I tried B which also failed due to that and now I don't find anything else.
