comment What is the etymology behind る in 日{ひ}/昼{ひる} and 夜{よ}/夜{よる}?
One of the 語源説 for the entries in 日本国語大辞典 suggests ヨオル【夜居】 and ヒオル【日居】/ヒアル【日有】, which seems relatively reasonable. It also mentions ル as some kind of morpheme.

comment How to place ありました with the 〜んです pattern, and the meaning of the resulting sentence
I'm not sure "Isn't there anything?" is a very fitting translation for 「なにか なかったんですか」. Perhaps something more like "Was something not [there]?" or "Was something missing?" would be more apt.
