I manually created a VCF file, the head of the file looks like the following:

##fileformat=VCFv4.1
##filedate=Fri Sep 30 23:36:01 EDT 2016
##source=csv2vcf.pl what ever
##FORMAT=<ID=GT,Number=1,Type=String,Description="Genotype">
#CHROM  POS     ID      REF     ALT     QUAL    FILTER  INFO    FORMAT  GENOTYPE

1   565343  rs41485244  A   G   .   .   .   GT  0/0
1   565374  rs9701779   A   G   .   .   .   GT  0/0

And the tail of the file looks OK like the following:

MT  15954   rs28561372  A   G   .   .   .   GT  0/0
MT  16129   rs41534744  G   A,C .   .   .   GT  1/1
MT  16153   rs2853512   G   A   .   .   .   GT  0/0

I was trying to split those multi-allelic variants into bi-alleilic ones using the following command:

bcftools view -m -any my.vcf

And the got the error as stated on the title:

Any idea?

Thanks.
