I googled your error message and the only reference to this problem is this thread. Good luck.

I’ve just had a look from the ‘other side’ (as in, my wife’s Reminders app) and in her app she can’t put lists I’ve shared with her into groups (but she can group lists she’s shared with me).

Not being able to group lists shared with you is a strange limitation…but seems to be the story.
