That means that the node publishing to that topic is probably not running. Try rostopic list

(and follow the tutorials)

I agree with davinci.

Although I'm not sure, please try these:

rostopic echo /gazebo/cmd_vel
rostopic echo /gz/cmd_vel
rostopic echo cmd_vel

If you provide which robot you are trying to drive, we could help you more.
