A look at the source code of function `nnir-retrieve-headers' would
help. You can find the code by pressing C-h f RET nnir-retrieve-headers
and click `nnir.el' in the help buffer.

At the front of this function you will see a call to the function
`sort':

        (let* ((group-articles (pop articles-by-group))
               (artgroup (car group-articles))
               (articleids (cadr group-articles))
               (artlist (sort (mapcar 'cdr articleids) '<))
                         ~~~~
               (server (gnus-group-server artgroup))
               ...

The error message tells us that the 1st argument of `sort', (mapcar 'cdr
articleids) returns a list of nils. This involves a bunch of variables
and list operations, but by the documentation of `nnir-categorize' we
can infer that the structure of `group-articles' look like this:

    '((group1
        ((nnir-article-ids article11)
         (nnir-article-ids article12)
         ...))
      (group2
        ((nnir-article-ids article21)
         (nnir-article-ids article22)
         ...))
      (group3
        ...))

So `articleids' are this part: (nnir-article-ids article11)

and `artlist' should be a list like this '(article11 article12 article21
...)

In this case, the first argument to `nnir-categorize' may be nil, thus
article11 ... are all nils, so you get a list of nils.

The most likely reason therefore is that notmuch can't produce a list of
articles with your search conditions. I haven't used notmuch with gnus
so I can only provide a guess.
