How i solved was,

I removed ps-engine from ubuntu software center and then i was able to do rosdep and install dependencies.

This has occurred because I had pcl libraries installed before and some dependency conflict might have occured

I am having the exact same problem as yours. I know ps-engine is a part of PCL library. Removing it will get openni_camera to install ,but what if someone want to use both?
