This totally fixed the problem. I feel like a goon for missing something so simple! Thanks for your help!

Not really a mesa user, but it looks as if your Z_div/X_solar is off by one order of magnitude (at least if this should somewhat reflect a solar value to define the reference Fe/H=0 for the Sun), so the Fe/H in your model will be off by that amount as well. This could create a problem when trying to find a combination of Teff, Fe/H and stellar mass that makes more or less sense.

I know that error is pretty broad and can indicate a lot of things, but I’ve tried all my usual fixes for this without success (including widening the error bars on the observed constraints). I am also running 8-9 other physics variations and none of the other variations have this same problem even though all the observational constraints are the same. The only difference between them is one knob has been changed (ie. like turning diffusion off or using the OP opacities instead of the OPAL opacities). I’m pretty confused as to why this particular list fails each run but none of my other inlists seem to. I would really appreciate a second set of eyes on this since I have been struggling to get it to work for some time.

I am using a modified run_stars_extra.f file from one of Warrick’s summer schools a few years ago (which I will also attach below), but that file has worked with all my runs for several years without issue. I’ve also attached my inlist_astero, inlist_astero_search_controls, and inlist_freq (Note that my inlists were taken and modified from that same summer school—thanks Warrick!). Let me know if there is anything else useful I can provide!
