I suspect you are using a wrong executable (maybe pw.x) with an input (the one you attached to the message) that, instead, is suitable for dos.x

Indeed, if you read the error message, it complains about reading namelist “control”, whereas dos.x just looks for
a namelist “dos", so ti would never complain about an error on a namelist it does not expect!
