Hello,
if i try to use search with notmuch my nnmaildir, i get the error above.
here are the lines from messages:
Opening nnir server on nnir-ephemeral...done
Retrieving newsgroup: nnir:nnir-877dzp783m.fsf...
Doing notmuch query Hock...
notmuch args: search --format=text --output=files Hock
Massaging notmuch output...done
Fetching headers for nnir:nnir-877dzp783m.fsf...
sort: Wrong type argument: number-or-marker-p, nil

Same command in terminal works, as far as i understood. But i dont know,
if the lines are in correct format for gnus.
Perhaps anyone knows more about searching with notmuch inside gnus.

notmuch search --format=text --output=files hock

Can you run M-x toggle-debug-on-error, then trigger this error again,
and send the backtrace to the list?

Thanks,
Eric

A look at the source code of function `nnir-retrieve-headers' would
help. You can find the code by pressing C-h f RET nnir-retrieve-headers
and click `nnir.el' in the help buffer.

At the front of this function you will see a call to the function
`sort':

	(let* ((group-articles (pop articles-by-group))
	       (artgroup (car group-articles))
	       (articleids (cadr group-articles))
	       (artlist (sort (mapcar 'cdr articleids) '<))
                         ~~~~
	       (server (gnus-group-server artgroup))
               ...

The error message tells us that the 1st argument of `sort', (mapcar 'cdr
articleids) returns a list of nils. This involves a bunch of variables
and list operations, but by the documentation of `nnir-categorize' we
can infer that the structure of `group-articles' look like this:

    '((group1
        ((nnir-article-ids article11)
         (nnir-article-ids article12)
         ...))
      (group2
        ((nnir-article-ids article21)
         (nnir-article-ids article22)
         ...))
      (group3
        ...))

So `articleids' are this part: (nnir-article-ids article11)

and `artlist' should be a list like this '(article11 article12 article21
...)

In this case, the first argument to `nnir-categorize' may be nil, thus
article11 ... are all nils, so you get a list of nils.

The most likely reason therefore is that notmuch can't produce a list of
articles with your search conditions. I haven't used notmuch with gnus
so I can only provide a guess.

Not quite :) There seem to be nil values in the list of found articles
returned by the notmuch search backend.

Are you able to trigger the error with a search that returns fewer
results? In your previous message, the output of the notmuch CLI command
only contains seven results, but the elisp backtrace shows it trying to
fetch headers for more than 50 articles. Are those the exact same
searches?

Can you edebug the function `nnir-retrieve-headers', start the search
again, and when the edebugger starts hit "e", then "(setq abg
nnir-artlist)", then in a followup to this message paste the value of
the `abg' variable?

Eric

Hello,
thank you for your info.
Unfortunately i'm not a developer, so i don't understand all you wrote.
As far as i understand, you mean, that the problem is with notmuch?
But why is it working, if i call the command in terminal directly.
Perhaps some parameters, that push gnus to notmuch?

While your notmuch runs all right in the terminal, nnir runs notmuch in
Emacs environments and then processes the results so they can be used by
Gnus. I suspect something went wrong there.

I didn't look closely. But for example if you haven't customized the
variable `nnir-notmuch-remove-prefix', it defaults to "$HOME/Mail", if
your Maildir is not ~/Mail (Gnus advices against using ~/Mail for
maildir, iirc), the processed results may point Gnus to a wrong
location.

Perhaps you can paste your nnmaildir config in your .gnus.el to the
list, or point to me where to find it if you have done so. And the value
of your `nnir-notmuch-remove-prefix', you can find that by pressing C-h
v RET nnir-notmuch-remove-prefix RET.

Then you can go to your *scratch* buffer -- sorry if it shows in bold
when you read this, but the buffer name has asterisks -- and input the
following, parentheses included:

    (nnir-run-notmuch "Hock" "nnmaildir:Lokal")

and press C-x C-e with your cursor after the closing parenthesis, this
will run the command `nnir-run-notmuch', the results would be in the
messages. Post those as well.

this gives ?
Debugger entered--Lisp error: (wrong-type-argument listp "Hock")
  nnir-run-notmuch("Hock" "nnmaildir:Lokal")
  eval((nnir-run-notmuch "Hock" "nnmaildir:Lokal") nil)

  eval-last-sexp(nil)
  funcall-interactively(eval-last-sexp nil)

Is this meaningful for you?

This should be (nnir-run-notmuch '((query . "Hock")) "nnmaildir:Lokal")

You'll probably want to run (switch-to-buffer nnir-tmp-buffer)
afterwards, I don't think it will display the results by default.

That looks correct, but it would be important to see the whole list. Can
you still do the (switch-to-buffer nnir-tmp-buffer) and paste the
contents here?

It would help if we can see the complete list here. Unfortunately,
unless notmuch encounters a problem and value of `gnus-verbose' is > 6,
`nnir-tmp-buffer' would be erased. In your case notmuch runs perfectly
well.

However, after looking at the code of `nnir-retrieve-headers` more
closely, I think I narrowed down the range of possible courses a bit.

The offending line of code `(sort (mapcar 'cdr articleids) '<)` for one
of your searchs would translate into something like this:

   (sort (mapcar 'cdr (cadr 
		    '("nnmaildir+Lokal:Privat"
		      ((1 . 349)
		       (2 . 446)
		       (3 . 506)
		       (4 . 333))))) '<)

In this case it would run and give you the result:

   '(333 349 446 506)

But down the line, one or more of the articles would have ID(s) that are
nil. Maybe it's a file that's not properly synced. In the search result
it probably looks like this:

   ["nnmaildir+Lokal:SomeFolder" nil 0]

>>

As Eric mentioned, it is important to see the whole list. To get the
whole list generated by `nnir-run-notmuch', you can wrap your search
like this:

     (progn
      (setq xbuff (generate-new-buffer "*my output*"))
      (print (nnir-run-notmuch '((query . "hock")) "nnmaildir:Lokal") xbuff)
      (switch-to-buffer xbuff ))

Then you can copy the content of *my output* and paste it here. If
indeed there were some nils in the result, we should be able to find the
corresponding file using `nnmaildir-article-number-to-file-name' and
more elisp.

I haven't spent a whole lot of time with the maildir file format, but
neither of these look like legal maildir filenames to me. The first has
two colons, the second has none, and I don't know what's going on with
the exclamation marks. Even if they're legal I'll bet nnmaildir is
barfing on them. If you run:

(nnir-run-notmuch '((query . "Hock")) "nnmaildir:Lokal" '("karlderletzte/Sent"))

I would expect you to get something like this in *Messages*:

(["nnmaildir+Lokal:karlderletzte/Sent" nil 0]
 ["nnmaildir+Lokal:karlderletzte/Sent" nil 0]
 ["nnmaildir+Lokal:karlderletzte/Sent" nil 0])

Is that correct?

No, that's perfect! That basically confirms my suspicion that some of
your message filenames are causing nnmaildir to fail. They're probably
these:

/home/held/Maildirnm/karlderletzte/INBOX/cur/1554399542.4634_1560.shinri,U=651:2,S
/home/held/Maildirnm/karlderletzte/Sent/cur/1554294583.6ad7d1c538e8c734.shinri:2,,U=22:2,S!2,S
/home/held/Maildirnm/karlderletzte/Sent/cur/1554294638.4676_1518.shinri,U=23!2,S
/home/held/Maildirnm/karlderletzte/INBOX/cur/1554292397.3889_1547.shinri,U=645:2,RS

I'll open a bug report and see if anyone else can help. My last question
for you is: do you think Gnus/nnmaildir made these files, or is there a
chance that you're just using Gnus to read a maildir installation that
was created by a different program?

Eric

Hello,
hmmh i checked these messages and gnus displayed them correctly.
BUT what i see is that ONLY meesages inside my directory "Lokales" got
errors.
This directory contains all messages, which are moved from me (gnus
command B m) inside subfolders. All these subfolders are in format
nnmaildir and i got no errors if i moved the messages.

the directory Maildirnm is my imap folder. Here are all accounts with
all folders from my imap accounts. Here searching with G G works.

In directory Lokales G G gives the reported error.

Perhaps this helps.

Regards
Poul

[...]

As the Gnus manual described, if you have one Maildir server, you only
need to specific its directory once. All its subdirectories would be
treated as groups in Gnus.

More importantly, I don't find 'karlderletzte' as a directory in your
config. The way you set the maildir up may have something to do with the
filenames in the karlderletzte folder. That this directory has even more
subdirectories which look like maildir directories is also peculiar.

Have you actually used B m to move email to 'karlderletzte/INBOX' or
'karlderletzte/Sent' folder? Or do you use it for other purposes than
moving email manually into it? Perhaps splitting? Caching?

It would make things a bit more clear if you could let us know if you
configured this karlderletzte folder for some other use. Please have a
look at your Emacs, gnus, notmuch, imap server if any, offlineimap/isync
if any, and backup script if any, configs, and see whether any of them
mentioned 'karlderletzte'.

If you are using macOS or BSD, you can use grep from within Emacs like
this to help you find those lines:

  C-x d ~/path/to/your/config RET
  M-x grep RET
  grep -nHr --null -e 'karlderletzte' * RET
  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ this part may have been prefilled for you except
  for the 'r' argument for recursive search, just modify it to your need

If you find anything perhaps it would help us figure out why those file
names become malformed and cause nnir to fail.

Hello,

(nnimap "Karl"

i use it for bot cases. reason is, that gnus could not split messages
from imap to nnmaildir. as far as i understood from different answers
here or from emacs.stackexchange.com.
no offlineimap or isync.

This has all gotten a bit confusing, but is it possible that you're
using notmuch to index and search groups that are in fact part of your
nnimap installation? Or that the groups belong to both your nnmaildir
and nnimap servers? That might explain why you can open messages in the
group, but the search results are failing for those messages.

This is kind of a shot in the dark. As xuqi says, I think you'd be
better off first cleaning up your nnmaildir installation.

Eric

Hello,
i think i find the problem, but i cannot repair it.
ALL messages with error in gnus contain a combination !2 in the file
name.
This was used on Windows for correct working of imap folders, because :

if i change !2 in :2 (this assumes gnus, i read), the message is
accepted.

But how could i change the string inside the filename from !2 to :2 ?
Perhaps with dired, but i dont know how?

Any ideas?

Yeah, I thought that looked suspicious. Did you copy the maildir
installation over directly from a Windows machine? What program was
originally used to create that installation? I suppose this is an
argument for using some sort of export/import process, rather than
straight copying.

Dired has wdired-mode that allows you to edit file names in the dired
buffer as though they were plain text, and then "commit" all the renames
at once. If you have a small number of files to rename or they're all in
the same directory that would be most straightforward. If these files
are scattered through a very large number of directories you'll probably
want to do it in the shell, probably with find and exec and mv.

As physiculus apparently uses a linux system, I assume, that 
"find" will be GNU "find", "ls" will be GNU "ls", and a "bash" 
will be available. 

   (
     cd -- /the/nndir/directory/hierarchy &&
     find . -depth -name '*!*' \
       ! -exec bash -c -- '
         curname="${1##*/}" && dir="${1%"$curname"}" &&
         newname="${curname//!/:}" &&
         if test -e "${dir}${newname}" ||
           test -L "${dir}${newname}"
         then
           # The file to be renamed to already exists!
           # What should be done?  Let the user decide:
           cd -- "$dir" &&
           printf %s\\n \
             '\''current subdirectory:'\'' \
             "$dir" \
             '\''The file to be renamed to,'\'' \
             "$newname" '\''already exists!'\'' \
             '\''Please enter shell commands to resolve'\'' \
             '\''that situation.  For your convenience,'\'' \
             '\''the current file'"'s"' name is in the'\'' \
             '\''positional parameter "$1", while the new'\'' \
             '\''one is in the positional parameter "$2".'\'' \
             '\''For example, try the commands'\'' \
             '\''  ls -QF1logd -- "$1" "$2"'\'' \
             and \
             '\''  mv -i -- "$1" "$2"'\'' \
             '\''Type the command "exit" when finished.'\'' &&
           ls -QFlogdU -- "$curname" "$newname" &&
           "${SHELL}" -sim -- "$curname" "$newname"
         else
           # REMOVE THE FOLLOWING LINE STARTING WITH "printf" TO
           # ACTUALLY LET THIS COMMAND MOVE FILES:
           printf '%q\n' \
           mv -- "${dir}${curname}" "${dir}${newname}"
         fi' bash \{\} \;
   )

Not tested, though, therefore the actual "mv" command will only be 
printed rather than executed.  See the comment written in 
capitals, above.
