Are you running these commands from inside emacs? eshell? where?

If yes, because your EDITOR is bind to emacsclient -t, it try to open an
emacsclient inside the emacs terminal (eshell or something else) and it
fail because terminal is not powerful enough to run emacs.

If so, use as EDITOR:(make a script maybe)

emacsclient -a "" "$@"
emacsclient -a "emacs -Q" "$@"

Be sure also you have an emacs server running.
