sudo apt-get update

And that also did not work. How can i fix this problem.

First you need to create the folder for the workspace which must contain src folder. You need to create these folder first. Please follow the ROS tutorials to speed up the learning process.

I would take a step back and first ask @Zaitoon what "it doesn't work" and "that also did not work" means.

This question as-is does not contain a sufficient description of the problem or the observed behaviour to be able to help you @Zaitoon.

Finally: this question was tagged ros2, but also mentions catkin_make. Catkin is not used with ROS 2. So either this is a ROS 2 question and the answer would: don't try to use Catkin, or it's ROS 1, where Catkin is used, and the ros2 label should be removed.
