Hi,
First of all I observed that you did not use the
"ecutrho" keyword, which could influence on your
results.
By default ecutrho=4*ecutwfc, but you have to use
more higher ecutrho (say, 10-12 times larger than
ecutwfc), because you used ultrasoft pseudopotential.
Default value for ecutrho is accepted for
norm-conserving pseudopotentials.
Concerning the message you posted discussed before in
the forum. The recipe is that you have to use the
"ecutwfc" keyword (and increase it, if the message
arises).
The last, for usltrasoft pseudopotential (USP) there
is no need to use cutoff energy 80Ry. It was mentiond
many times that for USP ecutwf around 25-35 Ry should
be OK.
One more comment. Ge is rather in the diamond
structure than in zincblend which is for AB cubic
(usually, semiconducting) structures.
Bests,
Eyvaz.
