this is not an error but as stated a warning. The reason is, that polyhedral (e.g. tetrahedral instead of hexagonal) cells are part of your mesh. This warning tells you, that Fluent will consequently only be able to read the mesh you created, if it reads a general polyhedral mesh, and not a hexagonal mesh.

I Don't know what this means for you, as you didn't specify what you have done and what your purpose is. As I don't have experience with FLUENT, I can not help you anymore.
I can only tell you, that this also happened to my mesh when I exported it after using 'stitchMesh' (which created tetrahydral cells), but that was no problem for me, since I didn't use FLUENT afterwards and as an unstructured mesh the mesh can still be used in my opinion.

I am facing almost the same warning message when using foamMeshToFluent.

However, my mesh in OpenFOAM is good when I open it with paraview but the meshing in ANSYS format do not open with Fluent Mesh and it just reads the number of cells and faces then gives me the following error message:

Error: 0 : SIGSEGV (Segmentation Violation)
Error object: #F
