Do you have a specific reason for wanting to setup a Trusty+Indigo system?

It would seem create_autonomy is compatible with at least Kinetic (according to the wiki page.

Also: when asking these kinds of questions always mention for which platform you are trying to build. What is the output of lsb_release -a and uname -rvmp?

Reason I ask is that it's likely that rosdep update is skipping Indigo, as it's an EOL distribution. That leads to an empty database, which leads rosdep to not be able to resolve anything on that OS. You'll have to add --include-eol-distros to the rosdep update command line for Trusty+Indigo.
