I'm trying to run an lmer model with family poisson but receive the
warning message: 

Error in objective(.par, ...) : 
  Leading minor of order 2 in downdated X'X is not positive definite

I'm using the newest version of R and recently installed the following
libraries: (lme4, matrix, lattice).
I don't understand what the warning message means or know how to fix it,
please help!
My response variable is a count variable (n=551); 212 with value = 0, and
the rest range between 1-3.
