Catkin_make compiling issue

Hi Everyone,
I am following the ROS Basics in 5 days class, but I am stuck in the exercise 4.3 about creating new messages. Anyway, after I followed all the steps, when I tried to compile the code with catkin_make it seems like it does not do anything. Here is the message I am receiving;
Base path: /home/user/catkin_ws
Source space: /home/user/catkin_ws/src
Build space: /home/user/catkin_ws/build
Devel space: /home/user/catkin_ws/devel
Install space: /home/user/catkin_ws/install

Running command: “make cmake_check_build_system” in “/home/user/catkin_ws/build”

Running command: “make -j36 -l36” in “/home/user/catkin_ws/build”

Does anybody know what is the issue?
Thank you

Hi, try removing your build/ and devel/ folders and compiling again with the following commands:

cd catkin_ws/
rm -rf build/
rm -rf devel/
source devel/setup.bash
rospack profile

If this doesn’t work, please share screenshots of information that is relevant to your question, like the message you are trying to create, the folders, and the output of the terminal.

I found this helpful when catkin_make only built it for the previous exercise. I hope it works for you too.

Blockquote catkin_make --only-pkg-with-deps <target_package>
