Is there a temporary solution that I can do to EMBOSS-4.0.0 to fix the
datatype errors instead of waiting for solution from Luke? I sent several
emails to him but got no response at all for a long while. Thank you very

That is because in EMBOSS 4 the ACD file for the "fuzzies" have a new
datatype called "pattern" ; also, the option "number of allowed mismatches"
is now an attribute of "pattern" rather than a separate ACD parameter. Maybe
you can send a message to Luke and ask him to mend this. 
Note by the way that the new version of the interface wEMBOSS, which can
handle all the EMBOSS 4 intricacies, is just out.
