When I run the simulation, I am facing this problem.

Build process completed successfully
Saving external mode simulation output as a single object is not supported because the workspace variable 'out' is not created during model code execution. To suppress the warning, set 'ReturnWorkspaceOutputs' to 'off'.

The middle error is saying that the model was not able to detect any packets from the target.
  • the wrong port might be specified
  • the device might not be not be plugged in or turned on
  • the cable might be faulty
  • the device might not be ready
  • in cases involving ethernet, bluetooth, or wifi, security software might be blocking the connection

As mentioned by @Walter Roberson in the comments above, this error message indicates that Simulink was unable to communicate with the target board. One of the main reasons this can occur during run time of an external mode simulation is that the communication bandwidth usage is very high and communication can be momentarily lost. The following MATLAB Answers post has some suggestions on how to reduce the usage of the external mode communication in order to prevent this error:
