I appreciate you trying to use ROS Answers for this, but the course you are referring to has a dedicated forum available for questions.

It's not we don't want to help you here, but you have a much higher chance of getting answers if you use the appropriate place to ask the questions.

But just to comment on your question:

hrwros_msgs is not a package that is installed in /opt/ros, so I'm confused as to how it would end up there.

Please post this on the course forum. If/when you do, please include all commands you used and how you setup everything.

If you have access to the course page on edX is under the Discussion tab.

The course instructors are most likely not F5-ing the discussion forum all the time. You'll have to be a little patient or lookup older posts about the same / similar problems.

Hello With my knowledge "roscd hrwros_msgs" take you in a wrong direction. if you try "cd /home/<your_system_name>/hrwros_ws/src/hrwros/hrwros_msgs/msg" and then touch your msg file, then it works fine.

Best Wishes
