I used the following command to generate VCF files from the 23andMe zip file for the Michigan Imputation server but it keeps failing with the validation error: At least 20 samples must be uploaded.

java \
  -jar vcf-tools-0.1.jar \
  vcf-generator \
  --in 23_n_me/23andme-tools-output/genome_name_v4_Full_20230822212500.zip \
  --ref human_g1k_v37.fasta \
  --out 23_n_me/23andme-tools-output/For_Imputation/ \
  --exclude Y,MT

The command spits out VCF.gz file for each chromosome which looks something like the following.

##fileformat=VCFv4.2
##FORMAT=<ID=GT,Number=1,Type=String,Description="Genotype">
##contig=<ID=1,length=249250621>
#CHROM  POS ID  REF ALT QUAL    FILTER  INFO    FORMAT  genome_name_v4_Full_20230822212500

Would you know what might be wrong or if I am missing something? Is the output VCF format wrong?

Your vcf file has only 1 sample, right? It cannot impute for only 1 sample. You need to have at least 25 samples for imputation.
