I am suspecting that something may relate to the data. Do you have
persistent variables that change seldom? Maybe that's causing a
problem for the 'random' estimator. Is your panel balanced? If not,
does it contain very few observations for some ids?
To make sure that the functions work as expected on your system, try
to replicate some of the examples in the 'plm' vignette.
