I've just started with MoveIt! tutorials and completed all the installations required to follow the panda tutorial without any errors.

However, I can't see the interactive markers to move the robot around to set its initial and final states. I've tried reinstalling.

I'm using ROS Kinetic on Ubuntu 16.04, but tried this with Melodic on Ubuntu 18.04 too. Facing the same issue. Please help.

Do let me know if more information is required.

Please see ros-planning/moveit#1399:

OK - I think I've found a big clue as to the cause of this issue. I took a quick look at the recent changes to the panda_moveit_config made on 10th Feb and noticed that the virtual joint was changed from "fixed" to "floating". I tried changing it back on my local environment and now I am able to see those interactive markers! ros-planning/panda_moveit_config@d97b987a.

Thanks! Its the same issue. However it seems there's not a solution to it yet.

No, but you should have at least a work-around in the meantime.
