Follow-up Comment #7, bug #35157 (project octave):

I kind of like that the error message explicitly recognises that you used
non-real values. I think that should be kept.

However, I was thinking this might be better:

error: complex scalar type invalid as index value (forgot to assign a value to
i or j?)

The a(i) and a(j) mistake for default values of i and j is probably common
enough that explicitly asking the user if that's the mistake might be useful.
