Minimization using Fmincon Error

Hello everyone,
I'm working on a minimization problem with the objective of minimizing the difference between the measured properties and my model's input parameters (5 variables). I'm using fmincon: thus I have an objective function (i.e. my mechanistic model), initial guesses for my variables, no linear equality/inequality (i.e. [],[],[],[]), lower bound, upper bound for all variables and a constraint function (i.e. nlconst) to ensure positive, definitness of my variables.

Of course my code is not working but I quiet don't get where it fails, I was hoping you guys could help me understand what these error messages mean:

Error using optimfcnchk/checkfun (line 318)
User function 'homogenizationRoutine1t' returned NaN
when evaluated;
FMINCON cannot continue.

Error in nlconst (line 744)
f = feval(funfcn{3},x,varargin{:});

Error in fmincon (line 837)

Does this mean that my constraints (defined by me) cannot be met using the defined objective function (also defined by me)?
