You seem to be mixing the ||-separator and ()-binding notation.

Try this:

twoway (scatter capture lngdpppp if year==1988 & group==1) /// 
(qfit capture lngdpppp if year==1988 & group==1) /// 
(scatter capture lngdpppp if year==1998 & group==1) /// 
(qfit capture lngdpppp if year==1998 & group==1)


Hope this helps,
Scott
