99% of cases like this is because your computer ran out of memory. Phonon calculations can be extremely resource-demanding unless you carefully tune the computational parameters, esp. if you use automatic determination of the supercell size (and even worse if the system is large to begin with). We cannot comment further without details of the calculation though.
