I added a thermostat on the openStudio plugin (on Sketchup), however I still get a warning after running a simulation saying that I do not have a thermostat. I get this warning for all thermal zones. This results in 0 heating and cooling.

This is what I see on the openStudio Sketchup plugin: C:\fakepath\Capture.JPG

What version of OpenStudio are you using,I don't think we still give direct access to the thermostat object in the inspector, instead the thermostat would be assigned with the space attributes tool.

You should open your model in the OpenStudio application, it'll be easier to look at the thermostats on the thermal Zone tab. Make sure you assign both a cooling and a heating schedule, or the thermostat won't get forward translated to E+. If you don't need cooling, put a schedule with a very high value, like 40C or whatever.

Also, maybe you should upgrade your OpenStudio version to a newer one:
