I typed 'emacs --debug-init' into my terminal and emacs started with a blank screen. Under the Buffers menu were only '*scratch*' and '*Messages*', no
'*Backtrace*'. Any ideas?

Do I need to create an init file?

"Cannot save customizations; init file was not fully loaded".

How can I remedy this?

I understand now! Since you do not have an init file, GNU Emacs can't save any customisation. Obviously the message you cited is a bit misleading – maybe it's worth to report it as a bug (see Help menu) that it gets corrected to report that no init file exists and a file name is needed (and GNU Emacs should suggest names) to save the customisation.

Maybe it helps to create with a 'touch ~/.emacs' an empty init file, launch GNU Emacs again, redo the customisation, and then save it.

So you have an answer to your latest question: yes, you need an init file to save customisation.
