As I am using the GROMOS froce field, I constrained all bonds as suggested. However, I obtained the same error.
I copy the .mdp file in case there are errors and you can help me to find them:

That depends on the force field convention. It is not universally
appropriate to constrain all bonds (and certainly should not be the
"solution" to just "make the warning go away"), and the warning from
grompp may not actually be the source of any problem.
