Comments

@nullspace I think the main problem here is that catkin is unable to find the URDF description, and then all the next errors occur in cascade. Have you tried to access that file from roscd command for instance.

Furthermore looking at the command you are using: roslauch~/catkin_ws/src/mastering_ros_robot_description_pkg/mastering_ros_robot_description_pkg/launch/view_demo.launch, this is not the proper way to launch a file: it would be something like:

roslauch mastering_ros_robot_description_pkg view_demo.launch
