Extract info and find/count strings from blocks inside text file


Hello

I have a text file which has blocks like
Code:
dir1/dir2/dir3/name_run_number1:
line1_run_number1_part1
line2_run_number1_part2
line3_run_number1_part3...
Each block is separated with a blank line and there is the ":" in the "header" of each one while each block carries the same "number1" after "run_" suffix
What I want to do is for each block, extract the "number1" as shown in the first line and then for the lines below count from 1-20 and give a message if a "partX" line is missing. Any bash or python would be fine

Thanks
