The problem is that hettest isn't designed to run after areg.  You 
should estimate with one of the newer xt commands and then test for 
heteroskasticity either according to the following FAQ:

or using Kit Baum's xttest3.

You can find out more about these if you try

findit heteroskedasticity panel

from within Stata.
