I also referred to the user manual and found that in my version of
modeller, malign_3d has been deprecated and that I should use salign.
However, salign (in the context of the tutorial exercise) does not
return an object that can be used to continue the tutorial.
The tutorial has not yet been updated to use salign. malign3d still
works just fine - we just recommend using salign for serious alignments.

Obviously to do a structural alignment, you need the structures. So
Modeller tries to read in PDB files for each one, and it's reporting
that it can't fin the 1b8p PDB. You can either get these PDB files from
PDB itself, or you can download the basic tutorial input files from the
link at the top of the basic tutorial page, which includes all of the
needed input PDBs.
