First,

Do I have to use Panels and an Omega SubTheme? Both seem pretty unnecessary for a custom theme. I didn't see any documentation on theming and the Omega documentation is weird. I'd rather use a Bootstrap theme. Do you have any recommendations?

What are you using panels for?

Second,

I get this error when I check for updates. I did a clean install and this error shows on the site.

You don't have to use an Omega subtheme if you'd like to build everything out yourself. That theme just provides some basic styles around the views and pages.

You also don't have to use Panels to build out the theme on the site, but you will need it enabled because it's an integral part of how the backend administration is set up.
