That will happen if you create a variable called "output_precision" by
doing something like

  output_precision = 2;

and then try to get the second element of the output_precision array
by doing

  output_precision (2)

since the ouptut_precision variable you created only has one element.

  clear output_precision
  output_precision (2)

or restart Octave and just type

  output_precision (2)
