I am trying to transform a geometry_msgs PoseStamped but I get the error lookupTransform argument target_frame does not exist, I get the same error using tf_echo. What is going on???

The target frame is being published at 10Hz and can be seen in rviz.

Please add to your question your code, the exact tf_echo call including the full output, and also link the graph created by `rosrun tf view_frames`.

That suggests that the frame you are setting as the target_frame is not being published. Please add details to your question if you'd like more help.
