This means that what Stata applied bootstrap to produced an error --
most often, a convergence failure or perfect prediction (in binary
dependent variable models). To see what's going on, specify -noisily-
option of the -bootstrap- command. If you have an insanely heavy model
with 150 variables, then you may simply have  run out of degrees of
freedom for these bootstrap samples.
