Your issue is that your dsquery is returning an empty list dsget group -members -expand has no information on which to get anything and is returning the error.  If the members expand also returns an empty set later on, you will get a similar error from the dsget user query.

you probably want to run the dsquery on its own to see the result set returned.

Also remember you can wildcard dsquery  e.g. dsquery group -name "*remot*cc*s*"
