Error running abinit test file

Hello, I was running an abinit test file at the nanohub, but it has problem launching. It is a test file for generating STM charge density images for aluminium. The input is as follows:

ndtset 3

#GD calculation tolwfr1 1.0d-12

#Features needed for the STM charge density : negative bias, DS2, probe unoccupied states getwfk2 1

Is is that the abinit installed in nanohub couldn’t generate STM charge density images? Or is there anything I need to change in the input file?

Thanks, Best regards J
