You need the 1065 Partnership program to prepare a multi member LLC tax return and the CA 568...if youre in the 1040 personal program you wont be able to do it in there.

in the 1065 program you clicked the State button and choose the CA LLC?

I just had one open on my screen, its working fine here.....sounds like youre attempting to create a 568 using the 1040 program, not the 1065.

Selected box that partners are related to each other. Is that why it is treating SMLLC ?

I just worked on one today at the office, but I didn't get any odd error messages like you are.

If you uncheck that they're related does the error go away?

on 568 after Item GG - 1 and 2 there is box "Single Member Limited Liability Company (SMLLC) Smart Worksheet - A. Check the box if the SMLLC has elected to be disregarded". It is not SMLLC so it should not ask this question.

I went through checking a bunch of those bazillion yes/no boxes as YES trying to get that box to give me a pink error, I'm not finding a trigger for it...
Have you done a lot of work on that 568?  Is it Pay Per Return and you've already paid for it?   If not, I'd delete it and start over from scratch.

Thanks Lisa for all the responses. Really appreciate it. I will delete and recreate. Intuit is blocking me from responding to your messages saying "I am violating their policy" ...hence delay in my messages.

Lisa advised me to back-out all the data and re-enter. That worked. Never figured out why it error out in the first place.

From the 1065, click the state button and you should have a choice like the picture below.
