this error message you get when the index is an empty file. So something
must have happened during the index building - either a crash or the
input files were empty. You can use the -d flag for embl to see if
the parser finds any strings in the input to put into the index 
so try

srsbuild -d embl 


srsbuild -d embl -f id

to specifically test the ID field since it is the one that remained
