gffread error

hello

I am currently trying to do RNA-seq using public data in brassica juncea.

To use htseq-count for making count table, I have to convert gff file which downloaded in brassica database to gtf file.

So I used gffread for converting gff file with below command

gffread Bju.genome.gff -T -o Bju.genome.gtf

But when I type above command, I got a lot of error message like below

To check if the file was created properly, I checked file size.
And it looks like ok.

40M Bju.genome.gff
56M Bju.genome.gtf

and I also used ‘head’ command, and there seems to be no problem

So, I wonder why the error message appeared and whether it is okay to use the created file.
I would be really grateful if someone reply.
