Arm not moving with Cartesian pose

Hello All,

I am having a 3 DOF robotic arm. For this arm, I am using IK-Fast motion planner for its movement.

I am using below code to move the arm to different points:

#include <moveit/move_group_interface/move_group_interface.h>
#include <moveit/planning_scene_interface/planning_scene_interface.h>
#include <moveit_msgs/DisplayRobotState.h>
#include <moveit_msgs/DisplayTrajectory.h>
#include <moveit_msgs/AttachedCollisionObject.h>
#include <moveit_msgs/CollisionObject.h>

int main(int argc, char** argv)

ros::init(argc, argv, "move_group_interface_tutorial");
ros::NodeHandle node_handle;
ros::AsyncSpinner spinner(1);

moveit::planning_interface::MoveGroupInterface move_group("arm");
moveit::planning_interface::PlanningSceneInterface planning_scene_interface;
const robot_state::JointModelGroup *joint_model_group = move_group.getCurrentState()->getJointModelGroup("arm");

ROS_INFO_NAMED("tutorial", "Reference frame: %s", move_group.getPlanningFrame().c_str());
ROS_INFO_NAMED("tutorial", "End effector link: %s", move_group.getEndEffectorLink().c_str());

moveit::planning_interface::MoveGroupInterface::Plan my_plan;

/* Move Code: With xyz positions */
geometry_msgs::PoseStamped target_pose1;
target_pose1 = move_group.getCurrentPose(move_group.getEndEffectorLink());
//target_pose1.orientation.w = 1.0;
target_pose1.pose.position.y = 0.01;
//target_pose1.position.y = 0.0;
//target_pose1.position.z = 0.58;

/* Move Code: With Joint positions 
moveit::core::RobotStatePtr current_state = move_group.getCurrentState();
std::vector<double> joint_group_positions;
current_state->copyJointGroupPositions(joint_model_group, joint_group_positions);
for(std::vector<double>::iterator it = joint_group_positions.begin(); it != joint_group_positions.end(); it++)
    ROS_INFO("Joint position: %lf", *it);
joint_group_positions[0] = -0.5;

return 0;

Here my problem is that, I am not able to move the arm with setting the xyz pose. I am able to move it with setting the joints, as shown in commented part of the code. I am also able to move it with RViz goal settings.

And I am getting below errors:

I am not able to find the solution for this. Please let me know what should be the problem for this.
