I have a limited character list of possible characters included that may be included in the password (twelve possible letters in lowercase or capital form, 2 numbers, 2 symbols) and the password is complex in that it may include lowercase letters, capital letters, numbers, or symbols, but it is simple in length. I ran dmg2johh.py to generate a password file (dmg2john.c will not compile) and then executed John on this password file, receiving a "No password bases loaded" response. I created a new DMG with a known password and repeated the above process, and John immediately found the password. I also repeated the above process on a preexisting DMG from several years ago and it succeeded as well. Only the DMG in question that I need to open gives the "No password bases loaded" response. Interestingly, the password files of the new DMG created as a test case and the subject DMG that I am trying to open are not similar whatsoever in format or length. Would this be indicative of an an idiot user, an incompatible encryption format, a corrupted DMG, or some larger system or John issue?
