Thanks John.

Yes, that was the case, because I had no intention of downloading the pdfs.
So I had set

(setq doi-utils-download-pdf nil)

and left org-ref-pdf-directory nil. Setting it to a valid directory gets
rid of the error. Thanks.

I would find it useful (given that I've disabled auto-download) if I was
prompted for the location of the pdf. That way I could either (a) provide a
link to the pdf wherever I've stored it, or (b) not provide a link (yet).
Just a thought.

Thanks again for all your help.

Andreas
