Unhappy rhoSimpleFoam terminates immediately on running

Hi, I am new to this community, CFD, and OpenFOAM. I'm mostly self taught so far, but I'm planning on studying it further in grad school.

I am trying to model a flow through a jet nozzle using OpenFOAM on Windows Subsystem for Linux. I successfully ran simpleFoam. The solver I want to try next, rhoSimpleFoam, quits after reading the thermophysicalProperties without sending an error message. I'm not sure what could be causing this. Any help would be appreciated. I've included screenshots of the problem, my mesh, and code blocks of my dictionaries.
