I ran into this same problem, and I think I fixed it. Seems like it has something to do with the permissions on the system-wide tmp directory not being compatible with mim.

Following the instructions at:

I made a new temporary directory for Stata in a place where I have full permissions:
mkdir /usr/local/stata/tmp
chmod 755 /usr/local/stata/tmp

Then I added the line
export STATATMP="/usr/local/stata/tmp"
to my ~/.bash_profile file

Log out and back into a terminal window or type:
export STATATMP="/usr/local/stata/tmp"
at the command line, and it just works!

Hi Again,

Maarten - Thank you for your reply. I downloaded all commands from ssc
(ssc install) just before use.

I reran some simple code using the sysuse auto dataset with the ice
command and got the same error when using mim.  I realized this was a
question better for Patrick Royston so emailed him directly as it
appears to me to be a bug since it occurs even with simple code.

You have brought up a further issue which might be better discussed
with the group - and I will put this into a new email with a new
subject as it is really separate from the mim command itself.
