colcon (build tool) can be aggressive in its number of parallel workers and parallel compilation threads specially if the machine is not very powerful. Let's try to reduce the number of parallel compilation threads:

MAKE_JOBS=1 colcon build --parallel-workers 1

You can increase the 1's in that command to gain some speed but will increase the amount of memory used.

Sadly that didnt work either , that link is what it looks like , now stuck at 64% instead of 66

Could you please attach the output of MAKE_JOBS=1 colcon build --event-handlers console_direct+ --parallel-workers 1?

found another fix and trying to reinstall might cause problems again so i wont be able to test this , thanks for the help tho

deleting everything ros/gz related then redownloading did the trick
