As Alan said, it's not an error message, but a warning. Your camera will still take the photos.

Just as a test I actually managed to even overexpose a shot while the message was showing (yeah I exaggerated every setting possible).

I think what it also might mean is that the subject has no lighter tones (don't cameras try to expose at 18% grey?) and so the camera literally can't see enough to decide how to expose the image.
