Issues and resolution

There is no content between the <ref>...</ref> tags. Either delete the two tags, or put content between them, for example:<ref>content</ref>; or, if you're reusing a named reference that's been defined elsewhere in the article use a single tag, for example <ref name="refname" />

Examples

In this example, there is no content within the first set of <ref>...</ref> tags:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.<ref></ref> Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.<ref>Reference 2<ref> Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur.
