I suggest you read this :
try to edit the fault rosdep.yaml. Please send a full installation log

_For the "Base Install" you additionally need package mercurial, otherwise

If you have problems with Cturtle, I highly suggest you go with Diamondback
that I have tested and for wich patches have already been send to correct
