Can you check the contents of the following directory /opt/ros/melodic/lib/moveit_setup_assistant/ looks you are missing file

If you are missing this file, it means moveit is not properly installed. I suggest to check your moveitinstallation:

Also do a search of your full drive, it may be installed somewhere else, just to see what happened.

Hi I will respond to this question formally and let's start a new question as more people will get the chance to look at it. Thank you.

Don't build MoveIt from source, unless you did that initially to install it.

Just make sure you have no outstanding apt updates for any ROS packages.

I would recommend to undo whatever you did for your from-source install of MoveIt.

I solved it by using sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq ros-melodic-cob-cartesian-controller-dbgsymto force remove the broken package and then uninstall moveit using sudo apt purge ros-melodic-moveit* and then reinstalled it.

The error is pointing to a missing file in the following directory /opt/ros/melodic/lib/moveit_setup_assistant/. To correct check if the file is in the directory, if not then check moveitinstallation. For more information:
