For anyone encountering this issue. This is how I solved mine. By using an older implementation ( ROS2 Foxy ) CMakeList.txt. In the link below.

Replace the contents of that github page into the directory


and it should solve the issue and build just fine.

As Reference. Here's the error code i encountered.
