The second command is redundant, since read.table() produces a data frame.

These commands are unnecessary, since you're not referencing g or p.

> HPV <- factor(PV$HPV)
Whether these commands are necessary depends upon whether REL and HPV are
already factors; if they are character data in the file PV.txt, then by
default read.table() will make factors.
> fit <- manova(as.matrix(PV) ~ REL + HPV + REL:HPV)
This really doesn't make sense: Since REL and HPV are among the variables in
PV (although not necessarily factors), these variables are both on the
left-hand and right-hand side of the model.

My guess is that REL and HPV are non-numeric. I wouldn't have to guess if
you had provided the data.
I hope this helps,
