hello, i get this error when using/check the lighting control:

Program Version,EnergyPlus, Version 8.9.0-40101eaafd, YMD=2019.07.28 22:52,
************* Beginning Zone Sizing Calculations
** Warning ** Site:GroundTemperature:BuildingSurface: Some values fall outside the range of 15-25C.
** ~~~ ** These values may be inappropriate. Please consult the Input Output Reference for more details.
** Warning ** Weather file location will be used rather than entered (IDF) Location object.
** ~~~ ** ..Location object=PSLH (O1-O1:31-12) (01-01:31-12)
** ~~~ ** ..Weather File Location=yogyakarta - - MN7 WMO#=999
** ~~~ ** ..due to location differences, Latitude difference=[6.99] degrees, Longitude difference=[3.54] degrees.
** ~~~ ** ..Time Zone difference=[0.0] hour(s), Elevation difference=[80.00] percent, [80.00] meters.
** Warning ** GetSurfaceData: Entered Zone Floor Areas differ from calculated Zone Floor Area(s).
** ~~~ ** ...use Output:Diagnostics,DisplayExtraWarnings; to show more details on individual zones.
** Warning ** GetSurfaceData: There are 4 window/glass door(s) that may cause inaccurate shadowing due to Solar Distribution.
** ~~~ ** For explicit details on each window, use Output:Diagnostics,DisplayExtraWarnings;
************* Note that the following warning(s) may/will occur if you have not enclosed your zone completely.
** Warning ** Entered Zone Volumes differ from calculated zone volume(s).
** ~~~ ** ...use Output:Diagnostics,DisplayExtraWarnings; to show more details on individual zones.
** Warning ** CalculateZoneVolume: 19 zones are not fully enclosed. For more details use: Output:Diagnostics,DisplayExtrawarnings;
** Warning ** CheckUsedConstructions: There are 9 nominally unused constructions in input.
** ~~~ ** For explicit details on each unused construction, use Output:Diagnostics,DisplayExtraWarnings;
************* Warning: Node connection errors not checked - most system input has not been read (see previous warning).
************* Fatal error -- final processing. Program exited before simulations began. See previous error messages.
************* ===== Final Error Summary =====
************* The following error categories occurred. Consider correcting or noting.
************* Nominally Unused Constructions
************* ..The nominally unused constructions warning is provided to alert you to potential conditions that can cause
************* ..extra time during simulation. Each construction is calculated by the algorithm indicated in the HeatBalanceAlgorithm
************* ..object. You may remove the constructions indicated (when you use the DisplayExtraWarnings option).
************* EnergyPlus Warmup Error Summary. During Warmup: 0 Warning; 0 Severe Errors.
************* EnergyPlus Sizing Error Summary. During Sizing: 6 Warning; 0 Severe Errors.
************* EnergyPlus Terminated--Fatal Error Detected. 10 Warning; 0 Severe Errors; Elapsed Time=00hr 00min 20.39sec
