Make sure that the shebang at the top of the script (#!/bin/sh or
similar) points to a valid shell, and that it uses unix-style end of
lines. If a control character or linefeed gets in there somewhere, the
kernel won't be able to find the proper interpreter to run the script,
hence the "test.sh: '' not found."
