They are both nouns and both mean a lack of discipline. However, the word undiscipline is far less common than indiscipline. The latter can be found in most dictionaries, while most dictionaries will not contain undiscipline.
Far more common is the use of undisciplined as an adjective. Though even in this context it would probably be more idiomatic to use a negation of the word disciplined instead, compare:
- He is rather undisciplined.
- He is not very disciplined.
