Can't solve this problem. Tried everything but nothing helps. What can be wrong?

The message simply means there is nearly no outflow over your outlet, so your setup is incorrect. This could be caused by physics (eg. imposed outlet static pressure too high), an improper choice of the location of the outlet (eg. vortices convecting over the boundary --> extend your domain), or simply instabilities associated with startup (try a smaller timestep/local timestepping etc.).

All it is saying is that there is some reverse flow at an outlet and it has been stopped as reverse flow is not allowed at outlets. If the effect of this reverse flow is not significant then you can ignore the error and continue. If the reverse flow is significant you should (in increasing order of accuracy): 1) Replace it with an opening which allows reverse flow 2) Extend your domain so the new outlet location has flow in one direction only And you should check your domain physics to check that is OK.
