Holding the camera in poitrait mode and the arrow points up. Since I'm sweeping the camera horizonally left to right with the arrow pointing up, the direction of travel is 90 degrees relative to the direction of the arrow, thereby resulting in a failed shot. Numerous attemps resulted the same error. will keep trying.

That's the very reason it's failing. You have to move the control wheel until the arrow is pointing the direction you are sweeping, regardless of your orientation .

To the OP, make sure you do this, and hold the camera up to your face (moving slowly), and you should be able to get very reliable panoramas.
