I'm trying to use the test launch file from ur_modern_driver to check ROS package for controlling UR5. The run is unsuccessful by following error:

ERROR: cannot launch node of type [ur_modern_driver/ur_driver]: can't locate node [ur_driver] in package [ur_modern_driver]

I've followed the installation of universal-robot and ur_modern_driver packages from git. I'm using Ubuntu 18.04 and melodic ROS. I also updated the UR5 software to the newest version 3.6.0.

In addition, I installed Ubuntu 16.04 and kinetic ROS on VR machine and got the same error.

Any suggestion?
