If you run the same regression with a robust standard error (or a cluster) the F-test disappears.

I know I can generate it myself, I am just curious why the F-test disappears and whether it is an indication of a problem with running an F-test on a FE regression with robust standard errors.

Thanks.
When you use either xtreg or areg with a fixed effect you get an F-Test about the significance of the fixed effect.
