Problem with UMAT and XFEM

Hi all!

I try to simulate crack propagation using subroutine UMAT and XFEM, but I can't fix the error

***ERROR: THE PENALTY STIFFNESS HAS TO BE PROVIDED BY USING *SURFACE 

           BEHAVIOR,PRESSURE-OVERCLOSURE=LINEAR OR *SURFACE BEHAVIOR,AUGMENTED 

           LAGRANGE WHEN USER MATERIAL IS USED FOR A CRACK PROPAGATION ANALYSIS 

           WITH XFEM

 although I define *Surface behavior in .inp file:

*Surface Interaction, name=CONT

*Surface Behavior, Augmented Lagrange

1., 1., 1.

but the error persisits. The .inp and .dat files attached. 

Please help me!
