A common cause for this is \label{} before \caption{}, make sure you 
keep the right order when labeling:

\caption{The caption}

For the index makeindex should suffice, but the important bit is to 
decide what to index. This is _not_ easy, and may take a lot of time. 
Most convenient method I've found is to print out a copy, take a marker 
and read the whole piece, marking all words and page ranges that you 
want to index.

As far as glossaries are concerned: the important bit is to decide what 
to put in them, beyond that a list item in twocolumn mode may suffice.
