Stata's error messages are sometimes a bit cryptic but are usually
very helpful. I suspect you have perfect prediction happening or some
other issue, such as a non-concave likelihood. That's a lot of
variables for the number of observations for this kind of model and
you probably don't have the data to run the model you want. Try
deleting each variable in turn to see if you can identify the trouble
variable.
