_pepred in this package insists on integer arguments; that is what
biting. The restriction is documented, but you need to look at the
specific help file. I don't know of any arguments for this except
convention, but you need to ask the authors.

I wanted to use 97.5% Cis but it would appear that only integer values are accepted? The following syntax tells me that "option level() incorrectly specified" and  "invalid syntax" repectively. If this can be reproduced, I will send off an email to the address in the help file.  (Perhaps there is a good reason, or I am doing something stupid).
