Found this through google.

A more specific prefix could not be programmed into Ternary Content Addressable Memory (TCAM) and is covered by a less specific prefix. This could be a temporary condition. The output of the "show platform ip unicast failed route" privileged EXEC command will list the failed prefixes.

Recommended action: No action is required.

I agree with Hans. Look at the memory partitioning, maybe you can allocate more memory for L3 functionality.
