please refrain from posting the entire solve.out file for the sake of readability of the thread. you can always search for the errors in the solve.out file and paste them here.

you are seeing multiple element distortion errors. As mentioned in the error:

"Excessive distortion of elements is usually a symptom indicating the need for corrective action elsewhere.  Try incrementing the load more slowly (increase the number of substeps or decrease the time step size).  You may need to improve your mesh to obtain elements with better aspect ratios.  Also consider the behavior of materials, contact pairs, and/or constraint equations.  If this message appears in the first iteration of first substep, be sure to perform element shape checking."

Did you try with more substeps? with improved mesh?
