task dft optimize

and the error is

------------------------------------------------------------------------
driver: task_gradient failed 0
------------------------------------------------------------------------
There is an error related to the specified geometry driver: task_gradient failed 0
------------------------------------------------------------------------
driver: task_gradient failed 0
------------------------------------------------------------------------ There is an error related to the specified geometry

thank you
