Without providing more code it is rather difficult to help, but:

- the error message indicates that the object probeset.list$ID is empty.

- you are using an outdated interface to query annotation databases; you'd better either use select() or mapIds(). See ?select or ?mapIds after loading the library AnnotationDbi for more information on these functions.
