I input the fasta sequence of a novel fungus from spades assembler into repeatmasker (using rmblast) with the following command: ../RepeatMasker/RepeatMasker/ -species Fungi -xsmall x.fasta

After running the results are: No repetitive sequences were found in x.fasta

Can someone please let me know what can this mean?

Thank you!

The meaning is obvious.

If you are not sure that RepeatMasker is installed correctly, I suggest you run it on a short sequence with known repeats and verify they can be identified.
