Transform tree damaged after upgrading ROS

Hello ROS community,

I am trying to upgrade from Ubuntu 16.04 + ROS kinetic + Gazebo 7 to Ubuntu 18.04 + Ros Melodic + Gazebo 9.

I have a ROSLaunch file that runs gazebo with an environment and a node that publishes the ground truth position of the urdf robot. However, when running the node after the upgrade I get the error:

[ERROR] [1549876249.264445531, 7.551000000]: "odom" passed to lookupTransform argument target_frame does not exist. 
[ERROR] [1549876249.795771873, 8.077000000]: Lookup would require extrapolation at time 7.555000000, but only time 7.051000000 is in the buffer, when looking up transform from frame [camera_link] to frame [odom]

The transformation tree looks like this:

while in the previous version looked like this:

The launch file is:


  <!-- Launch the empty world -->
  <include file="$(find gazebo_ros)/launch/empty_world.launch">
    <arg name="world_name" value="worlds/"/> 
    <arg name="paused" value="false"/>

The problem was that /odom wasn't published by the diff_drive_controller, I run sudo apt install ros-melodic-desktop-full. Apparently, the ros-melodic-gazebo-ros-control was missing, after installing it, everything worked correctly.
