CatVariants Error - Features added out of order

I am running the practices pipeline on a large set of WGS data. On some of the CatVariants steps I am getting errors with the GATK v3.5.
there are errors:

    Can you please post the exact command you ran? How did you generate the VCF files?

    CatVariants assumes that the files provided cover consecutive non-overlapping intervals. The error suggests this requirement is not satisfied in your dataset.
