the X-X.skf files have a second line describing the atomic parameters
and the repulsive part and is correctly parsed by CP2K. Replacing this
line by non-zeros for X-Y.skf cases causes the problem.

tou can find all the information on the DFTB website, e.g.

Thanks very much for your help. It does fix the problem! What about the X-Y.skf file when X=Y, e.g. in file O-O.skf, the fourth line reads 20*1.0 also, do we keep it as it is? 
BTW, it will be great if someone can redirect me to some materials that explains the format of dftb parameter files.
