During installation of Debian package builder for Oracle SQL developer in Ubuntu 18.04, I used the following command:

make-sqldeveloper-package sqldeveloper-

but it is showing the result like this:

make-sqldeveloper-package 0.5.4 Copyright © 2009-2018 Lazarus Long
Debian package builder and installer for Oracle SQL Developer

"sqldeveloper-" not found, aborting...

Please provide the proper solution for it.

The format of the command make-sqldeveloper-package is as follows:

make-sqldeveloper-package  -b <BUILD_LOCATION>  <LOCATION_OF_ZIP_FILE>

From the man page:

-b | --build-dir <dir>

    base directory to build package

For example:

make-sqldeveloper-package -b /tmp/deb/ ~/Desktop/sqldeveloper-

In this example BUILD_LOCATION is tmp/deb.
