Well this is one of most common problems with fem design. Basically this means that there are some unconnected elements and you should see smaller finite elements around that part.

Instead of searching for unusable element, try to find those tighter mesh ares by cheking storey for storey. Fix those errors by zooming in and it will fix the problem.

In this case i am pretty sure that you should searh for finite element and not node. Thats why you cant see any errors

If you still having errors, try reaching out to support.
