So this is a guessing game, but in my experience the robot's controller needs the description of the robot to work. I would suggest to look for a description.launch file or if you don't have it a description package for your model.

Loading a description in a launch file looks normally like this:

<param name="robot_description" command="$(find xacro)/ $(find robot_description)/robots/robot.urdf.xacro" />
