I have been experimenting with URDF files and would like to load the Nextage urdf file.

roslaunch urdf_tutorial display.launch model:=`rospack find nextage_description\`/urdf/NextageOpen.urdf gui:=True

will launch rviz and I can see a white shape but as the panel on the left shows, there are many errors (see images above). Checking out the latest and visualizing this did not help either; same problem.

Any ideas how to fix this? Thanks!

Did you try setting a new fixed frame? Rviz is telling you that the one that you have selected does not exist.

Try using WAIST as the Fixed Frame. This is what's done in the wiki
