PROBLEM IN VCF FILE: HALF GENOTYPE INFORMATION

Hi.
I have converted the tsv file from Complete genomics(CGA tool) to vcf format. but, when I run programs, it says some error in my vcf format. I carefully examined the vcf file and found, in some SNVs the GT is 1|.(dot). Is it a valid vcf file or is there any problem in vcf file? The program showed the error in those lines in which GT is 1|.(dot) i.e half genotype information.
The line looks like this:

1   55164   .   C   A   .   .   NS=1;AN=1;AC=1;CGA_XR=dbsnp.103|rs3091274;CGA_RPT=L2|L2|49.7;CGA_SDO=2  GT:PS:FT:HQ:EHQ:CGA_CEHQ:GL:CGA_CEGL:DP:AD:CGA_RDP  1/.:.:VQLOW:30,.:30,.:8,.:-30,0,0:-8,0,0:18:18,.:0

    Unfortunately we don't have the resources to provide support for this type of problem, which is not specific to GATK. Please see the VCF specification to understand what is wrong with your file or use VCF validation tools.
