I'm using ROS Noteic on WSL2 with Ubuntu 20. I'm trying to run a package but after using catkin_make I keep getting this error

Charlotte-master is the name of the package, right? If so, it looks like you should use catkin_make --pkg Charlotte-master.

I tried what you said but it's not working. it says "package not found" I've downloaded this Charlotte-master from github as a reference to a project I'm working on. I'm completely new to this ROS

In CMakeLists.txt, you'll find a line called project(XXXX). That, XXXX, is the name of the package. Try catkin_make --pkg XXXX. ( I don't know Charlotte-master. )
