kotimari is on a distinguished road

I am trying to create a 2D mesh around a wind turbine airfoil by following the video tutorial prepared by ANSYS. After creating the mesh, I ran check mesh to find out that there are problems in the cells located near the boundary of the farfield and the airfoil. When I try to read the mesh in Fluent 13, I am getting the following the error message:
Error: Build_Grid: no cells in case file.
Clearing partially read grid.

Error: Build Grid: Aborted due to critical error.
Error Object: #f
My questions are:
1. How do I interpret Check mesh result?
2. How can I solve the issue?

Have attached a screenshot of the check mesh output.

Thanks for the help!
