There are several reasons why you might get this message.

One class is that you are trying to put something
which is missing directly into a matrix.

Another class is that you are asking Stata to
do a matrix calculation which would result
in one or more elements of the result matrix
being missing.

A general suggestion is now to

set trace on

and then reissue -ivprob-, and to report where the program
emits this message.
