It was getting the python interpreter of anaconda and said that there was no empy. So, I uninstalled anaconda so that it could get the path of my default python in Ubuntu. Still it was the anaconda python as executable python. So, I uninstalled ROS-noetic and installed it again. But still the problem could not be solved.

momin@momin:~$ source /opt/ros/noetic/setup.bash
momin@momin:~$ mkdir -p ~/catkin_ws/src
momin@momin:~$ cd ~/catkin_ws/
momin@momin:~/catkin_ws$ catkin_make

don't worry about changing the python executable.

and you may get another error about catkin_pkg

then just do pip install catkin_pkg
