PRESS ENTER KEY TO CONTINUE.

Cause

Dataset problem.

Resolution

This error can be caused for several reasons.  The most common is a dataset problem.
Check that all construction libraries are defined correctly, have enough space allocation, and there are no typos in the name.
The libraries would include internal, external, and compatibility for current and foreign business systems.
If nothing is found, contact support so the install process can be run in batch with debug set (CDPSR).  This will identify all libraries used in SYSLIB and APPLOAD that can be checked.

Additional Information

In one particular example of this problem the CICS library was recently changed.
Need to go to browse the Parmlib library and edit member TIRHE and TILHE. 
Parmlib is one of the Gen libraries with the same Gen prefix as other Gen libraries.
Update all locations within TIRHE and TILHE where the old CICS library name is located, replace with the new reference and save the members.
Then retry the generate/build/link process for the Gen modules.
