You'll need to show us the output with the error message about the lack
of full rank etc. before we can offer advice about what it means and how
to deal with it.

You can use xtoverid to get cluster-robust SEs; this is a way of
addressing the within-panel autocorrelation.  This post briefly
describes how:
