Default Trying to get Altai Neanderthal chromosome 2 VCF, facing difficulties

Hello, I am trying to generate a vcf file from

I have downloaded it to the University of Florida's Fisher Bioinformatics cluster as Neanderthal.bam

I've used the following command to successfully sort it
/sandbox/gms6231/PROGRAMS/samtools sort Neanderthal.bam Neanderthal_sort

and I've been able to get a bcf file out of it as such
/sandbox/gms6231/PROGRAMS/samtools mpileup -f hg19_chr2.fa Neanderthal_sort.bam >Neanderthal.bcf

but as I try to generate my vcf file with this command
/sandbox/gms6231/PROGRAMS/bcftools view -cvg Neanderthal.bcf > Neanderthal.vcf

I begin to get this error:
[bcf_sync] incorrect number of fields (0 != 5) at 0:0
[afs] 0:0.000
Neanderthal.out (END)

What I am I doing wrong?
