Did you solve this issue? I have the same problem running metgrib.exe with GFS data

The error can have several causes, but in my experience, Error in ext_pkg_open_for_write_begin usually means that the output_from_geogrid_path doesn't exist (typo in the namelist) or the output directory isn't writable or the disk is full.

There could be other causes, too, such as compiling WPS as serial and linking to a parallel WRF (or vice versa). It could be that WPS and WRF were compiled with different compiler versions or different nctcdf versions.
