 From memory, you get this error when building a virtual library if you 
do not have all the 'member libraries' of the virtual libary enabled on 
your system. The Library definition for EMBL (look for the $EMBL_DB 
section at the top of $SRSDB/embl.i) contains a list of the databases 
which make up the EMBL virtual library:

  memberLibs:{
       $EMBLREL_DB
       $EMBLNEW_DB
       $EMBLCONT_DB
       $EMBLWGS_DB
     }

If you do not use the EMBL WGS, new or Contig databases, try commenting 
  these out of the list of memberLibs, then run srssection. Then try 
rerunning srscheck/srsdo, and see if that solves the problem.

Hope that helps,
James
