I've encountered this error when I've forgotten to pass a field name or have passed an empty field name. It shows up in the query string as "&=value" or "&=".
Also occurs if the query is missing the -lay parameter.
Also occurs if your query includes high ANSI characters: ("Name=P%E9terov%E1" which translates to "Name=Péterová")
