    It seems someone has been cutting and pasting with no idea what's going on

    I'd do a search for a line that has assert( ...
    But since you say it's on line 60 of fgets.c, I'm assuming it's coming from the fgets() function rather than your own code...
    Maybe you should check the value of fp after calling fopen() to see if it actually opened the file...

    As cpjust has correctly diagnosed, this is telling you that you passed a NULL pointer to fgets(). Since buff1 obviously isn't going to be NULL, and fp is in all likelihood NULL (following a failed fopen), then that would be the problem.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
