You basically have two options:

  1. Install the debian package (Requires sudo rights): sudo apt-get install ros-melodic-urdf-tutorial
  2. Clone the source-code directly into your workspace and then rebuild your workspace. See as a guide to do this.

If you just want to get urdf_tutorial installed, the first option is probably the better and easier choice.

Thanks, it worked! Is the debian package present in my system or is it installed from the net? What is a debian package?
