To fix this error, need to install the missing package rqt_virtual_joystick:

Suggested installation:

mkdir -p joystick_ws/src
cd joystick_ws/src
git clone
cd ..
echo 'source ~/joystick_ws/devel/setup.bash' >> ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc

To test: rosrun rqt_virtual_joy rqt_virtual_joy Notice that the package is rqt_virtual_joy
