You do need to have ros-groovy-urdfdom

sudo apt-get install ros-groovy-urdfdom

Than you just need to execute

rosrun urdfdom check_urdf my_urdf.xml

you dont need the urdfdom_model

And finally, when you are going to convert it to pdf, you do

rosrun urdfdom urdf_to_graphiz my_urdf.xml

If you are using Fuerte, you should try the command

rosrun urdf_parser check_urdf my_urdf.xml

Apparently much of the urdf functionality is moved into the urdfdom package in Groovy. See the note on this page. If you are using Groovy, perhaps you are missing the ros-groovy-urdfdom package.
