I went through the related questions and tried to implement the solutions as suggested, but I couldn't get the solution of this error.

This error happened when I was implementing Hector Slam in my system, so I went onto install packages. Has some package installations have caused this error ? After that even turtlebot failed to appear in the gazebo environment

At times, I get 'make -j12 -l12' or 'make cmake_check_build_system error'

Please help, I'm Stuck on this error for a long time. I am very new to this environment.

Thanks in Advance. PS I'm unable to upload the picture of the Error as I dont have 5 points. :(

Hey, I just updated the question with the error.

You tagged ROS Kinetic, but it appears you are trying to compile stuff with Gazebo 9.12.... is there a good reason for this? Mixing ROS/Gazebo versions can be messy, and best avoided if possible. Any reason you are building the controller_manager package from source when it could be installed from apt?
