It looks as if one of the rules in your list is bad.  There were a few
typos in the new gen of rules, but they have been fixed.  I'm running
them right now with no issues.

You get that issue with this type of rule:
    alert $HOST -> $HOST 80 (msg:"hi";)
This alert should be
    alert $HOST any -> $HOST 80 (msg:"hi";)

Look for any rules like that if you continue to have this error. 
(Download the latest rules, and you shouldn't...)
