this kind of message usually appears when some part of QE has
trouble reading a restart or some other intermediate file.
there are a number of possible reasons (error in calculation,
miscompiled executable, bug in code) and it is hard to tell without
having an input. if 3.2 worked for you, you can try compiling 3.2
for this specific calculation.
