As you have probably guessed, that is not an error. Rather it is
a progress/diagnostic message from samtools printed to stderr.

There is a long standing bug with Galaxy assuming that any
output on stderr indicates a failure, despite typical usage on
Unix/Linux for progress, diagnostics or warning messages:

In this situation Galaxy tools use a wrapper script to cope
with these non-error messages. That should be happening
already with sam_to_bam.py - but I am unclear if you are
having a problem with the provided SAM to BAM tool, or
your own tool which uses samtools internally.
