3D mesh contains invalid faces?

I want to compute some kind of flowcell for a project, but there is some error that I cannot solve on my own.
The flowcell consists of 3 inner tubes and the flowcell itself aranged around the middle one of these inner tubes. The tubes themselves consist of 8 blocks each.
After I run blockMesh, the mesh was shown properly in paraView, so I run simpleFoam.
This is the error shown by simpleFoam:
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR: This mesh contains patches of type empty but is not 1D or 2D by virtue of the fact that the number of faces of this empty patch is not divisible by the number of cells. From function emptyFvPatchField<Type>::updateCoeffs() in file fields/fvPatchFields/constraint/empty/emptyFvPatchField.C at line 150.
I attached all the logfiles and also my blockMeshDict (comments are in German, if you need the translated version, i will translate it).
Please help me to get an idea of what I made wrong.

Hi Florian. I'm sorry to see you haven't had any response yet. I'll try to help.
I had a look at your blockMeshDict and saw that your empty patches are in blue, I mean, as a comment. You don't have actually the empty patches declared and I think that's the mistake!
