Match results error message instead of No Match Found message

In which Wildbook did the issue occur?
What operating system were you using? (eg. MacOS 10.15.3)
What web browser were you using? (eg. Chrome 79)
What is your role on the site? (admin, researcher, etc)

What happened?
2 of 5 match results for a new user gave error messages instead of “No Match Found” message

What did you expect to happen?
No Match found message should be displayed

What are some steps we could take to reproduce the issue?
This is somewhat unique situation as this is our first user in Location ID Central Africa (Zakouma - Chad)
See the following encounters;

I believe the error message is being generated because there are no other encounters with the same viewpoint in the dataset currently (Only 5 encounters total)

Hi Paul,

That is correct. There was nothing to match against. If you expand the search to other locations or add other “top” viewpoints at that location, you should see match results or “No match results” listed. This situation only occurs when there was nothing in the database to match against.
