CCS/BOOSTXL-BATPAKMKII: Battery Fuel Gauge reports errors after a minute or two

Part Number: BOOSTXL-BATPAKMKII

Tool/software: Code Composer Studio

Greetings.

I am using the MKII battery booster pack with a MSP432 Launchpad (red).  I am running Code Composer Studio v7.4 on an iMac.  I shorted JP6 since the battery is always attached and will be built into my embedded device.  When run as per the instructions, the serial terminal shows the information the example provides, updating the battery data about once per second for awhile, about a minute or so, and then errors out.  In other words, "Error Reading Design Capacity" etc. on every line, clearly updating once per second with all errors.  If I go through several reset-button/toggle switch gyrations, it will start showing battery data again.  It errors out again in a minute or so.

The point I am making here is that it shows this behavior with only the hardware and software provided by TI.  How do I get it to keep doing its job all day in my actual embedded device?

Thanks for your help.
