Most likely because you've a target_link_libraries(.. urdf) somewhere?

Without seeing your CMakeLists.txt this is going to be really hard to diagnose.

Please copy/paste it into your question (edit it, don't post an answer). Please also remove all the boilerplate comments from it.

That is not the CMakeLists.txt for your package, but the one in catkin_ws/src.

I think we'll need the one in catkin_ws/src/robot_sim.

Thanks for your help. I am new to this stuff. I am taking an on-line Robotics class from EdX. The CMakeList.txt file provided the course administrators pointed to the /opt/ros/indigo/lib. I have kinetic installed. It was an easy fix.

Can you please link us to that online class? CMakeLists.txt should not need to link_directories(..) directly to /opt/ros/indigo/lib, and also should not do a target_link_libraries(.. urdf).
