This is not a request for help, but a tip that will hopefully help those who get this error. This error occurs when trying to read in the mesh into fluent and when doing the mesh check in fluent.

I am making a 2D structured mesh in Pointwise with several discrete zones/regoins. In order to get rid of this error, you must orient the i and j directions such that all zones/regions are consistently oriented (i.e. oriented with same directions).
