I have 5 variables: V D A E C and centered the score of five variables, that is to say, the means of five variables is zero. Each variable correlate with the other four variables. I want to see the distribution of the five variables in the different latent group (class 2, class 3, class4 etc), then choose the most suitable class.
First, I choose two classes:
(1)I get such a warning, how to solve it?
WARNING: THE BEST LOGLIKELIHOOD VALUE WAS NOT REPLICATED. THE SOLUTION MAY NOT BE TRUSTWORTHY DUE TO LOCAL MAXIMA. INCREASE THE NUMBER OF RANDOM STARTS.
(2) Why I cannot find Chi-Square Test of Model Fit in the output?
Increase the starts to 500 125. You need to increase the starts until the best loglikelihood value is replicated.

This time I increase the number of variables from 5 to 7. I get such a warning, how to do with it?
THE STANDARD ERRORS OF THE MODEL PARAMETER ESTIMATES MAY NOT BE TRUSTWORTHY FOR SOME PARAMETERS DUE TO A NON-POSITIVE DEFINITE FIRST-ORDER DERIVATIVE PRODUCT MATRIX. THIS MAY BE DUE TO THE STARTING VALUES BUT MAY ALSO BE AN INDICATION OF MODEL NONIDENTIFICATION. THE CONDITION NUMBER IS -0.531D-21. PROBLEM INVOLVING PARAMETER 43.

How big STARTS I should use? Because I increase the starts to 2000 1000, it still cannot work.
