E: unable to locate package ros-fuerte-laser-drivers

Since you're using ROS Indigo, you should install the package with "indigo" in the package name:

sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-laser-drivers


sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-urg-node

(note that I've replaced "fuerte" and "hydro" in the package name with "indigo").
