I searched in the forum solutions to the "ERROR: MODIS geolocation processing failed.", although all finf suggestions didn’t work.
I tried several input files, always with same result.
I work on "ocssw V2021.3"
In the following, the issue:

Here is the fix for the issue of "Percent valid data (0.00) is less than threshold". Please download https://oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/ocssw/de200.eos and replace $OCSSWROOT/share/modis/static/de200.eos with it. You should be able to run modis_GEO.py then.
