st: URGENT HELP: Problem with xtpmg

Dear All,

I am trying to estimate a dynamic heterogeneous non-stationary panel using the pooled mean group estimator via xtpmg; in my sample N = 14 and T = 26.

However, I am getting the messages

"numerical derivatives are approximate
Flat or discontinuous region encountered" and the log-likelihood is non-concave (even if I suppress the command, full, for getting the regression output for each N)

Why is this happening? What should I do? (I would like the regression output for each N)

I need this result rather urgently so any quick support would be greatly appreciated...

Many thanks,
Anirudh
