Do you see something like this in the pdb2gmx output?
Checking for duplicate atoms....
Fatal error: Atom CA not found in residue NAC24 while adding hydrogens
If you're using opls-aa, this is due to an atom naming inconsistency
between ffoplsaa.rtp and ffoplsaa.hdb. The former calls the carbon atom
CH3 and the latter calls it CA. Change one and it works fine.
