My checkered sphere missing, the Materials tab is missing from the Properties Window!

enter image description here

I don't know how to change the skin of the Minecraft Rig. Is there a reason the checkered sphere is missing?

    $\begingroup$ In the 3D viewport you have the wrong object selected, you selected the armature, instead you should select the geometry of the Minecraft character itself, not the rig. $\endgroup$ May 24, 2017 at 23:19

This happens because you are in Pose Mode, you need to be in Object Mode as shown below: enter image description here
