Are they trying to tell me that for some reason they won't be able to establish an inherited IRA? That would be disastrous this year.

Be calm. I assume you're worried about completing the decedent's RMD by 12/31. If for some reason you fail I think you'll find leniency when you request that the penalty be waived, especially when you show that you've been trying to comply.
